This seminar, the last in the succession planning series, will focus  on capacity issues, and the options available when a person’s capacity deteriorates. A deterioration in capacity can affect the young and the old, so the presentation is important for the elderly, those in business, and families of those suffering from incapacity.

The importance of putting an enduring power of attorney in place will also be discussed, outlining the necessary steps to put one in place, and the obligations placed on attorneys.

The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 will be discussed and an analysis of the key changes introduced, particularly the new decision-making supports available. The Fair Deal Scheme will be covered in brief.
