If a friend or relative loses capacity without having made a lasting power of attorney there will be nobody to manage their affairs. Anyone wishing to take on this responsibility will need to be appointed as a deputy by the court. We will advise you on what needs to be done for you to secure the necessary authority to manage that person’s affairs. We also offer advice and representation in cases where it is believed that a person is taking advantage of their position as a deputy of attorney. In such cases we can assist in having the appointment of the deputy or attorney terminated if appropriate.
