If you lose capacity
If you lose capacity the Court of Protection has a duty of care to protect vulnerable people, this could lead to the following problems:
- Bank accounts frozen
- Investments frozen
- Your money cannot be used to pay bills
This would mean a trusted person or family member would have to apply to the Court of Protection for a “Deputyship Order”, this typically will take between 9 – 12 months and will often be rejected. This process will cost in excess of £2000.
The answer to these problems is to arrange through the Guild a Lasting Power of Attorney which is a robust legal document that appoints people of your choice (while you are able to make these decisions) to manage your affairs in the event of you losing capacity.
