Housing LIN response to Law Commission consultation on Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty

From the 7th July to the 2nd November 2015, the Law Commission invited responses to its consultation paper "Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty".

In addition to raising awareness of the consultation and encouraging housing organisations to respond, the Housing LIN submitted its own response.

It makes some general observations about the proposals as well as addressing specific issues including in relation to the signing of tenancies if a person lacks the mental capacity to do so.
