My wife is applying now to be a Deputy. As we don't have a lot of funds (same for her mother for whom she wants to be a deputy) we have applied for certain exemptions. It all seems pretty daunting and we really have no choice as there is no one else to do it! We are about to post all the forms now. We are not engaging a solicitor due to the immense cost that could occur during the deputyship period (several years maybe!).
Does anyone have experience of the costs say for the Bond and really the general experience of handling the court process?
