Deputies must comply with new guidance by 1 April 2021

Office of Public Guardian Blog

The Court of Protection (COP) have issued a judgment called ACC and Others which will affect the way that court appointed deputies should act.

This judgment mostly affects professional deputies who look after property and financial affairs, but all deputies should be aware of the changes following this judgment.

The judgment addresses some key issues which deputies might face; it provides:

  • guidance for deputies who might be dealing with a dispute between two or more parties and need to carry out some work in relation to this

  • clarity for deputies when managing conflicts of interest, especially when a deputy wishes to provide additional services which are to be delivered by someone from within their own business
