Cheyney Goulding LLP Solicitors in Guildford
Decisive legal advice by your side

Deputyship applications

We understand that it is not always possible to ensure adequate lifetime planning has been considered and Lasting Powers of Attorney have been put in place in advance of any loss of capacity.  If a close family member does lose capacity without the benefit of Lasting Powers of Attorney our specialist team can advise on you on making an application to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.  If successful, the Deputyship Order will allow you to take charge of your loved ones’ property and finances and to act on their behalf going forwards. 

Our team also has experience in acting as professional deputies themselves in the event you feel a third party presence is needed to ensure that the best interests of your family member are considered.
