Good practice guidance on professional deputy costs

The Office of the Public Guardian and the Senior Courts Costs Office have issued good practice guidance on professional deputy costs.

The guidance has been created to help professional deputies when submitting estimates of costs and bills for assessment, and to explain what can be claimed for in general management bills.

It details how the Office of the Public Guardian and the Senior Courts Costs Office will work together to make sure deputies act in the client’s best interest and comply with the Court of Protection’s directions.

The guidance contains:
  • reminders of what to consider when incurring general management costs against the client’s estate;
  • advice on submitting bills of costs for assessment; and
  • the Office of the Public Guardian’s reporting requirements.
