We were referred a client by the Social Services who had an estate of £900,000. The client needed to move into a nursing home but no one was able to access her monies to pay the fees, as there was no trace of any living relatives. We worked with Social Services to ascertain the whereabouts of her assets. We also applied to the Court of Protection for one of our partners to be their professional deputy. We were then able to deal with her assets, to ensure that she was moved comfortably to the nursing home and her fee and expenses were paid out of her assets.
