The Law Society has just published a Practice Note on Financial Abuse. It highlights important matters such as the identification of those at risk of abuse and necessary steps in the assessment of capacity. It also (and in timely fashion given the recent decisions of Senior Judge Lush in cases such as Re GM) highlights the potential for abuse by attorneys and deputies. Whilst, strictly, only applicable as good practice for solicitors, the Practice Note provides a clear and comprehensive guide which makes important reading for other professionals dealing with adults at risk of such abuse.
