Court of Protection

When a person is not of sound mind e.g. dementia, and it has been proven to the courts that the person is unfit to take care of their affairs the judge will appoint a person to take over all responsibilities for that person.

The following will be required to effect:

• A summons issued by a lawyer for an affidavit, from the person to be appointed as executor of powers.
• Supporting medical letters as to person’s state of mind and incapacity.
• Financial statements covering bank account/s, debentures, etc.


The Registrar is Master of the Court of Protection
