Need a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), but the person has lost capacity? Don’t worry, you can apply to become their Deputy. It is similar to an LPA, but the Court of Protection makes the appointment on behalf of the ‘donor’ (who would otherwise have been able to make an LPA appointment had they still been of ‘sound mind’).
Applying to become a Deputy is a formal application to the Court, and therefore much more in depth than an LPA would be.
How much does a Deputy Application cost?
QLAW charges are £1,500 (+VAT) to deal with a Deputy Application for you (as the applying Deputy). This includes our professional fees for dealing with the application, and lodging it with the Court of Protection on your behalf. Any court fees due at the time of application are paid by you as a disbursement and are not included in our fixed fee of £1,500 (+VAT)
