This Practice Note explains how decisions should be made and what factors should be considered once a deputy has been appointed to manage the property and financial affairs of a person without capacity to make the relevant decisions for themselves. It sets out the principles for the decision maker to consider (including what is in P's best interests and P's wishes, feelings and beliefs) as well as practical steps and record-keeping. Guidance is also provided on how to help a vulnerable person to make their own decisions.
