What We Will Cover
Assisted Decision Making Capacity Act 2015 – Important Changes for Practitioners
with Dónal O’Callaghan BL
The commencement and implementation of the Assisted Decision Making Capacity Act, 2015 is imminent and will bring around a complete transformation of the legal landscape for colleagues practicing in these areas.
The commencement of the Act will lead to the phasing out of Wardship and the introduction of Decision Making Assistants, Co-Decision Makers, and Decision Making Representatives.
The Act will entail fundamental changes to the creation and operation of Enduring Powers of Attorney.
The Act also creates Advanced Healthcare Directives in Irish law the commencement of the provisions in relation thereto are long awaited and will involved changes to the care representative role arising under the Nursing Home Support Scheme Act 2009.
Practical Considerations on Easements post The Land And Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2021
Dan Cronin BL in conversation with Ms Justice Marie Baker
The Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act, 2021 came into force on 1 December 2021 and ended a lot of uncertainty and the potential for all sorts of headaches for practitioners and their clients.
And while the enactment of this legislation brought welcome relief and lifted a troublesome deadline for many, the legislation goes much further than that.
This little act makes big changes to the law of easements including in particular:
- The acquisition of easements by prescription
- The extinguishment of easements
- The registration of easements in the Property Registration Authority
- The repeal of problematic provisions of the Land and Conveyancing Reform Act, 2021 and the consequent reintroduction of the doctrine of lost modern grant.
These are changes that every conveyancing practitioner will need to be familiar with and understand their implications for practice in 2022 and beyond.
