Mental Capacity Assessments
Fixed cost mental capacity assessments in Kent. We provide COP3 assessments for Deputyship and certificate provision for Lasting Power of Attorney from £250 inclusive.
Certificate provision for Lasting Power of Attorney
In order for a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) to be valid and registered with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), it must contain a certificate confirming that the person making the LPA (the “Donor”) has full mental capacity at the time of making it. Plan with Care can make an assessment and provide the necessary certificate if required.
£250 inclusive of VAT and travel in Kent.
COP3 for Deputyship
If a person loses the mental capacity to make decisions about their health and welfare or their finances and property, then an application can be made to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy for either health and welfare and/or finances and property. The application to the Court of Protection requires the completion of a mental capacity assessment of that individual’s ability to make the decision about whom should manage their financial affairs for example. This form (the COP 3) can be completed if the person loses that capacity and signed by a registered practitioner at Plan with Care to assist in the application for deputyship.
£420 inclusive of VAT and travel in Kent, for relatively straightforward assessments. Complex cases are charged at an hourly rate.
We also provide these services in London and Sussex with additional travel costs.
