This work is designed as a guide for lawyers and professionals who navigate the Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988 on a regular basis, covering personal orders, property orders, applications, procedure, the impact of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, appeals and enduring powers of attorney.

With a practical introduction providing an overview of the regime followed by section based commentary this book is an essential tool for busy professionals needing the best information in one resource. It contains the full text of the PPPRA 1988, all associated regulations, selected forms (including the new enduring powers of attorney forms) and relevant extracts from the Family Court Practice Note.

The new edition captures important common law and legislative developments since 2012, especially the enduring powers of attorney changes brought into force in March 2017. It will be useful for legal practitioners, professionals working with the elderly or disabled, and those who work with or advise on guardianship issues.
