Re E

Mental health – Court of Protection. E was born in 1933 and lived in London. She had an estate worth approximately £30,000,000. In 2008, E executed a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for property and affairs and an LPA for personal welfare, in which she appointed her husband, D, and JK jointly to be her attorneys. She also appointed two replacement attorneys, M and IB, and expressly stated that M was to replace D, and IB was to replace JK. E's children made several applications to the court as a result of M's purported behaviour. M incurred costs dealing with the applications. The Court of Protection held that the costs of the parties were to be assessed on a standard basis and paid out of E's estate.
