With the introduction of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the subsequent introduction of the New Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian procedure for making applications to be appointed to act as a Deputy for someone who lacks the capacity to manage their own affairs or make decisions concerning their welfare.
Independent Living Advocacy Ltd are able to offer three services:
We will assist and guide you through the process of becoming the appointed Deputy.
We will also be able to assist you with the completion of all of the requisite forms and supporting information to ensure the application is processed by the Court of Protection.
We can also offer advice concerning the obligations you take on when you become a Deputy.
A fee is charged for this service.
When a Deputy is appointed by the Courts there is always a requirement that the Deputy keeps proper records of all transactions they have made on behalf of the disabled person.
The Deputy is then able to employ a Solicitor or Accountant to maintain suitable records on their behalf and to assist them in completing annual reports as required by the Court and/or Office of the Public Guardian.
Independent Living Advocacy Ltd is able to offer this service at very competitive rates depending upon the level of service/involvement required.
In the event there is no-one who is willing or able to take on the Deputyship role, we are able to offer a professional Deputyship service.
