Mental health – Persons who lack capacity. The applicant applied, under s 18(1)(h) of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, for the settlement of the deceased's (C's) property on trust. C had been born with severe neurological disabilities, following complications and birth, and he had died shortly before the settlement of his clinical negligence claim, aged 13. The Court of Protection ruled, in circumstances where the biological father had not been part of C's life, that C's property, which he had shared with his deceased foster carer's daughter and her husband (AH and EH), should pass to AH and EH, free from inheritance tax, and that the residue of the estate should pass to C's biological mother, who had cared for him for the early part of his life.
