Thy Will Be Done (Spain) Ltd introduce Professional Deputies to manage the property and financial affairs of adults who are deemed mentally incapable of doing this themselves, and have no family or friends that could or want to assist them with this vital day-to-day task. These adults are some of the most vulnerable members of society, and safeguarding their assets is at the heart of what we do.
Professional Deputies do this in one of three ways:
Appointeeship: offered to a person who just receives state benefits, but lacks the mental capacity to manage their own finances.
Appointees are appointed by the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP), and are provided with the authority to manage the state benefits of the client.
Deputyship: works in the same way as appointeeship but offers the protection of the client’s assets, savings or property.
Deputies are appointed by the Court of Protection (CoP).
The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) is entrusted with supervising the work of deputies appointed by the CoP.
Deputies are provided with sealed legal documents allowing them to act for an individual in all aspects of their financial affairs.
Professional Deputies also draft a large number of Court of Protection applications for Lay Deputies (who will either be a friend or family member), while also advising them on the legal requirements of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and the associated Code of Practice.
With over forty years of experience in the field, Professional Deputies are able to provide an all round money management system for people that are unable to manage their own finances due to mental incapacity.
In what can be a very difficult and complicated area of work for all involved, we believe the professional Deputies’ systems are at the forefront of their success. This is achieved by the software used, their specific expertise, a cost effective approach, security at the core of their ideals, practicality and lastly their caring approach.
By working with the wider care team that supports the individual, Professional Deputies are able to concentrate fully on their main responsibility – administering Thy Will Be Done (Spain) Ltd’s client’s funds & assets.
Authorised by the Court of Protection and regulated by the Office of the Public Guardian.
