When we were appointed as Deputy by the Court of Protection; for a “Non Compus” lady; we found that she was living at home with an illegal immigrant (with child); and the house was unsafe.
We immediately obtained a “Care Order” for her, and had her moved into a Care Home. We then obtained an eviction order for the illegal immigrant; and once we have vacant possession, we sold the property and invested the funds. We also found she had not been claiming/receiving her old age pension; and so we were able to collect the 5 year backlog and also invest that money.
As a result, we had funds to pay for her care home thus saving the local authority the cost.
