Event Details

Mental Capacity Act & Tenancy Agreements Course


Many local authorities and other organisations struggle with the law concerning the creation of tenancy agreements for those lacking mental capacity. A number of court judgments have illustrated the common problems faced by staff, and the consequences of unlawful tenancy agreements.

This course will consider how staff should assess mental capacity in relation to tenancy agreements and the key case law in this area. It will also consider the legal validity of tenancy agreements signed by, or on behalf of, those lacking capacity; and when people lacking capacity may be placed without a tenancy agreement being in place.

Delegates will be provided with examples of when applications to the Court of Protection may be required and the practical procedures relating to this. The role of attorneys and deputies, in relation to tenancy agreements, will also be discussed.


The day will include the following key topics:
  • Mental capacity assessments - overview and in relation to tenancy agreements

  • Best interests assessments - overview and in relation to tenancy agreements

  • Accepting and signing a tenancy agreement on behalf of those lacking capacity

  • Defining a tenancy agreement

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney & Deputies

  • Case law - supported living

  • Court of Protection - when to make an application

  • Court of Protection - bulk applications, forms and practical matters

Exercises will consolidate the learning process and allow delegates to explore the subject matter in more depth.
Q & A - The day will end with a question and answer session to clarify any outstanding queries

The course will be delivered by Aasya Mughal
