Applications to the Court of Protection

Applications to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy

Applications to the Court of Protection for a deputy to be appointed must be supported by a medical certificate confirming that the person no longer has the mental capacity to manage their affairs.

The application must include details of the assets held by the person who has lost mental capacity.

Further forms must be completed and submitted which provide details of the type of court order being applied for and details of the proposed deputy so that the court can assess their suitability.

A deputy can be a family member or close friend or may be a professional deputy such as a solicitor.
