Should you become mentally incapacitated, but don’t have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place, it will be up to the Court of Protection to deal with your affairs.

Your assets will be frozen until a ‘Deputy’ is appointed; however, the process can be drawn out and costly.

At Geoffrey Leaver we have an experienced team of Wills and Probate solicitors who are experts at sorting out an incapacitated individual’s affairs as soon as possible to minimise the cost and anxiety for those involved.

For more information or to discuss how we can help with issues involving the Court of Protection please email our Wills & Probate specialists Dagmara Kulczykowska or Nick Scott or call us on 01908 689317.
