Certainty Expert Webinars presents Gifting of P’s assets – avoiding the pitfalls

We are pleased to welcome Mitra Mann, Senior Associate, Tracy Ashby, Partner and Danielle Pawson, Associate at Wright Hassall who will be presenting our upcoming Certainty Expert Webinar on Tuesday 23rd November at 12.00pm, titled ‘Gifting of P’s assets – avoiding the pitfalls’.

Over the last few years, the OPG has received many concerns and complaints regarding actions taken by attorneys and deputies, particularly in respect of the management of a protected person’s property and affairs.

It is not unusual for the OPG to take steps to remove that attorney/deputy upon the conclusion of their investigations – or to suggest that the attorney/deputy makes an application to the Court of Protection to seek retrospective approval of a financial decision previously made by them.

This webinar will raise awareness of the scope of powers and duties of an attorney/deputy, particularly when making substantial gifts from P’s estate, and is aimed at solicitors or private client professionals who regularly advise attorneys/deputies on the scope of their powers; and those who make applications to the Court of Protection.


  • The law surrounding gifting by attorneys/deputies
  • Making unauthorized gifts and its consequences
  • Making an application to the Court of Protection
  • The Court’s approach to substantial gifting

Places for the webinar are limited so register for your free place now.

Certainty the National Will Register









Certainty the National Will Register is the UK’s provider of a National Will Register and Will Search service. Certainty Will Search and Will Registration is exclusively endorsed by the Law Society, recommended by key organisations and used by thousands of solicitors, the public, charities and financial institutions to register Wills and search for Wills.

At peak times, one Will is registered every two seconds on The National Will Register. The confidential contents of the Will are not disclosed, only the existence and location of where the Will is stored is recorded, ensuring that it can be found quickly and easily once the Testator has passed on. Registration ensures that if beneficiaries and executors are unaware if a Will was written or have forgotten where it’s located, it can be easily found by conducting a Register Will Search. The existence of a Will and its location are confidential. Only when the Testator has passed away can a Will’s location be declared. Even then, it will be disclosed only when the person searching for the Will has a genuine, bona fide interest and that person can provide a copy of a death certificate.

Certainty Will Search not only searches for registered Wills but also nationally for Wills that have not been registered to help prevent an old Will being used to distribute the estate or when the existence of a Will is unknown.

In addition, Certainty the National Will Register provides an online Will management tool for solicitors, which can be accessed remotely from anywhere with a secure internet connection so they can safely register Wills, search for Wills and use additional services Certainty the National Will Register provides for professionals.
