Hi Hope someone can help me. Dad moved into a care home at the end of October and I am applying for Deputyship so I can sell his house to pay for it. The Care Home are currently putting a DOL's in place and after speaking to one of the DOL's assessors the Doctor that assessed him believes he has lost capacity as does the lady from the local authority that went into assess him. Meanwhile his GP has been in to see him and do mental capacity assessment for property and financial, at my Solicitors request so I can apply for Deputyship. The GP has said that Dad does have capacity for property and finance and Dad wants me to look after his finances (I have been doing this for over a year, at Dads request after my Mother passed away). Has anyone had this situation before? Can I now apply for POA instead as he can retain the information and it is his wish that I continue looking after his finances? My Solicitor has never come across this situation before and doesnt seem to be able to answer the question. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
