Item Specific Case Study

Item Specific Mental Capacity Assessment

Every now and then we get asked to assess decisions that are out of the ordinary, Derek was just such a case. Derek was a very successful businessman who, whilst in the process of selling his business had suffered a stroke. The solicitors acting on his behalf contacted us to assess Derek’s ability to continue to be involved with the sale process and also to continue with his previously expressed wish to step down as a Director in one of his other companies.

Despite the stroke, Derek very definitely had capacity for both these decisions and the last thing we knew, he was sunning himself on a beach somewhere enjoying his recuperation following the successful sale of his company.

To discuss the wide ranging items we cover such as the capacity to have contact with someone, capacity to buy or sell a property or capacity to decide where to reside, please contact us.
