Professional Deputyship

Legal Advice on Professional Deputyship

Helping a loved one manage their financial affairs can be a heavy burden. Appointing an individual on their behalf can help ease the stress as well providing peace of mind, leaving you safe in the knowledge that their financial assets will be protected by a professional with a wealth of expertise.

Here at Farleys Solicitors our experienced solicitors offer a bespoke Professional Deputyship service, tailored to the individual needs of our client. Our dedicated team are committed to providing a professional support network for those unable to manage their property and financial affairs for themselves.

Farleys’ Role as a Professional Deputy

As a Professional Deputy we are appointed by the Court of Protections and offer a means of support, allowing clients to retain their independence and freedom in their day to day life. We place our client’s best interests at the heart of everything we do, offering protection, guidance and advice whenever called upon.


What is Professional Deputyship?

A Professional deputy can be appointed where there is no family member or other person who is able or willing to take on this role and assists vulnerable adults in managing and protecting their property, savings and other assets.

A Deputy works within the framework of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and its Code of Practice and must always act in the best interest of the person concerned and help them to make as many of their own decisions as they are able to.

What are the responsibilities of a Deputy?

An appointed deputy has a wide range of responsibilities. Typical duties include:

- Taking care of the daily finances of the client
- Ensuring that the person concerned receives the correct amount of benefits
- Preparing accounts and managing tax affairs
- Adhering to all orders and directions set by the court
- Ensuring client’s property is suitably maintained including any adaptions or the purchase of a new property
- Dealing with care arrangements and any employment law issues that may arise
- Protecting client’s financial assets by working with other professional advisors
- Annual reporting to the Court of Protection on decisions made on behalf of the person concerned
