Various Incapacitated Persons, Re (Appointment of Trust Corporations As Deputies)  EWCOP 3
Judgment looking at the Court’s concerns, where an application has been made to appoint a Trust Corporation as a Deputy, about the information required for the Court to be satisfied that the corporation is a fit and proper legal person to hold such appointment.
In a previous judgment in which the court concluded there is a requirement that the person should be able to understand, retain, use and weigh information as to the reasonably foreseeable financial consequences of a marriage, including that the marriage would automatically revoke the person's will, the court ruled that the P had capacity to consent to marry his long term partner.
Does the fact that a second marriage would revoke an existing will be information that a person should be able to understand, retain, use and weigh to have capacity to marry? The court concluded that it was.
This case concerned the issues of where the Patient should live and who she should see.
