A deputyship order gives you the ability to make decisions on behalf of someone who has lost the capacity to care for and make decisions for themselves. You might apply for a deputyship order when there is no lasting power of attorney (LPA) or enduring power of attorney (EPA) in place.
Deputyship is a way of getting the legal authority to make decisions on someone’s behalf, if that person no longer has the ability to grant an LPA or EPA. The application is only the beginning of a longer process. If you do become someone’s deputy, there are continuing duties and responsibilities that you will be expected to carry out in the future. You should think carefully about what is involved, and take further advice if you need to, before going ahead.
“Who needs Deputyship?”
· Your son or daughter with a learning disability has turned 18 and you want to deal with their affairs
· Your mother, father or any other relative or friend who relies on you lost capacity through dementia or any other condition that affects the mind or the brain and you need to manage their affairs
· A person who lacks capacity can no longer give Lasting Power of Attorney to you or another trusted person and somebody needs to deal with their affairs
