Bond applications can be made by Lay or Professional people. A ‘Lay’ person will be a family member, friend or relative, who does not raise invoices for their time and is not covered by a professional indemnity insurance policy.
A professional person will be paid formally for their services, raise invoices for their time and will be covered by a professional indemnity insurance policy for their work.
If a claim is required on a bond, please inform us as soon as possible. For the Appointee and LPA Bond a claim form will need to be completed. Please also inform the appropriate government agency (Office of the Public Guardian, local safeguarding team etc).
For Deputy Bonds the Court of Protection investigates if a claim is required and issues a Court Order to call in the bond.
Upon payment of the premium the Bond will be deemed to have been in force from the date of your appointment, with all previous activities automatically being covered by the Bond.
This cover may not apply in all scenarios. Please refer to the terms of the bond, along with the important information and key facts documents.
We understand that there are a lot of questions about how Bonds work and how they can be set up. To find out more information visit our Frequently Asked Questions page
