Court of Protection, 'Guidance: Applications to the Court of Protection in relation to tenancy agreements' (February 2012)
This document superseded Court of Protection, 'Guidance: Applications to the Court of Protection in relation to tenancy agreements' (June 2011) but has itself now been withdrawn. It provided guidance on when and how to make applications in relation to signing or terminating tenancy agreements on behalf of adults who lack the mental capacity to understand or sign the agreement themselves. It set out a 'streamlined' process for receiving applications relating to more than one person.
Alex Ruck Keene, 'Bulk tenancy applications' (Court of Protection Handbook, 21/10/16) — This blog post notes that any application in relation to bulk tenancy applications will now be met with the following response: "The previous guidance, which was drawn up following an approach by the Association of Public Authority Deputies and other court users, has been withdrawn. That had indicated that the court was prepared to deal with all of the adults required to sign the tenancy agreement(s) in a single bulk application. Attention has been drawn to the fact that the Court of Protection Rules 2007 make no provision for bulk applications to be made. It is not possible, as the rules stand at present, to entertain an application made on that basis."§
