Hi Andy,

In my view, HBR 82(3) only allows someone to act on behalf of the clmt if they become a formal appointee. I don’t think that HBR 82(3) allows an informal “acting on behalf of”.

The potential appointee has to first apply, in writing, to become an appointee, and then the LA has to decide whether to make that appointment.
