The Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988 (“PPPR Act”) exists to protect the personal and property rights of persons who are not fully capable of managing their own affairs. This may include someone who is mentally ill, has dementia, is intellectually disabled or has had a sudden serious accident such as a head injury or stroke which has affected their mental capacity. The incapacity may be temporary or permanent.
No one can lawfully make decisions on behalf of a mentally incapable person or relative without that person’s specific authorisation or the permission of the Court. This is where the PPPR Act comes in.
