Court Of Protection

Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors has an experienced Wills, Taxes and Probate legal department across the North East, with solicitors in Hartlepool, Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees and Barnard Castle.

The Court of Protection has the power to appoint people to manage your affairs, if you become mentally incapable and do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).

A better solution is, while you are fit and well, to appoint someone to look after your affairs.  We strongly recommend clients to complete a Lasting Power of Attorney

Your Deputy (usually a family member) will then be able to deal with your financial affairs, under the supervision of the Court of Protection.  At Tilly Bailey & Irvine we have considerable experience applying for orders, appointing deputies, and dealing with the Court of Protection.

The Court has the power to make other orders to decide issues for persons who are not mentally capable of making decisions for themselves, such as;

  • Making a will
  • Making gifts
  • Tax planning
