Court of Protection

sub-banner.jpg

Personal finances are tricky to manage at the best of times, when we are young and healthy – but as we get older, managing bank accounts, mortgage payments, council tax and everything else in between can become overwhelming.

The Court of Protection is the judicial body responsible for decisions relating to the management of finances and affairs of individuals who are incapable of managing them themselves. It has the power to transfer the legal right to make decisions from one person to another – for instance, from an elderly person to their son, daughter or other trusted family member.

If you would like to apply for Court of Protection rights over the finances of a member of your family who has lost the mental capacity to make sound decisions, we can help.

Find out more today – call our Middleton office on 0161 643 2411, or our Heywood office on 01706 623 511.  Alternatively, you can send us an online enquiry and we will be in touch. 

Applying to the Court of Protection

If someone you care about lacks the capacity to make important decisions, you could make an application to become their deputy. This will allow you to manage their finances and, sometimes, their health and welfare, which could give you the right to make decisions regarding hospital care.

If you need assistance with a court application, Temperley Taylor can:

  • Act as deputy if there is no-one else suitable
  • Help to obtain medical evidence
  • Liaise with the court
  • Assist with annual court reports
  • Guide clients on finances and accounts 

Our solicitors recognise the sensitive nature of this area of law and aim to achieve the most beneficial results for everyone involved. Making an application can be complex, so seeking advice from an experienced solicitor will save you time and reduce stress.
