In the case in which a Deputy has already been appointed to manage the affairs of a person lacking capacity if the incapable person owns property jointly with another person, a separate application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputy to be able to act in the sale of the property, as a trustee.
This is because the roles of the deputy and trustee are different from one another.
We have dealt with many applications to the Court of Protection to appoint a trustee. We can also work closely with our Residential Conveyancing team to make sure the sale of the property is managed efficiently in these circumstances.
