Wills & Probate | What is Deputyship?

Are you worried about the welfare and property of a loved one who is unable to manage their own affairs?


Deputyship provides protection for them and gives you the legal authority to make important decisions regarding their welfare or property such where they will live, medical treatment or managing their assets.


A deputy is appointed by the Court of Protection and can be a friend or relative or a professional such as a solicitor.


Emergency applications to the Court for deputyship may be necessary if your loved one, friend or relative is likely to suffer serious loss or harm imminently.


Applying to become a Deputy can be a complicated and time-consuming process but our legal advisors are empathetic and understand the process and can help you through the process.


The information provided in this article is not intended to constitute legal advice and you should take full and comprehensive legal advice on your individual circumstances by a fully qualified Solicitor before you embark on any course of action.
