Loss of mental capacity

In situations where an individual does not have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and loses their mental capacity to look after their affairs, a deputy will need to be put in place to deal with the individual’s personal needs.

Often, these situations can occur without warning. For instance, if the person was involved in a road traffic accident, suffered from an unexpected illness, or was born with special needs.

What is considered to be a mental incapacity?

The law indicates that a person has a lack of mental capacity when they cannot:

  • understand the information relevant to the decision;
  • retain that information;
  • use or weigh that information as part of the process of making the decision; or
  • communicate their decision (whether by talking, using sign language or any other means).

Client testimonials

Lydia Lim

My family and I are stoked that PKWA Family Law has helped us so much in the matter where MCA is concerned, we struggled with our previous lawyer who was not only sloppy in their work but defensive. A lot of time was wasted while the case was developing. When we switched to PKWA, we were wowed by the efficiency and responsiveness of all legal personnel involved in our matters. We saw the light at the end of the tunnel just within a timeframe of fewer than 2 months. Everything was swift and precise. Thank you, Charlene, Christina for the hard work.
