What happens if someone loses their mental faculties and has no Lasting Power of Attorney?

A deputyship order must be applied for if someone has lost their mental faculties and does not have a Lasting Power of Attorney. A deputyship order will allow the person appointed as deputy to deal with the person’s financial affairs, take care of their medical issues and act on his or her behalf in certain legal matters as well as many other issues that may require their involvement. The deputy must make decisions as though he or she were the person who is under the deputyship order.
