Ceasing to be Property Guardian

The Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) will cease to act as property guardian for a dependent adult when the PGT receives a Certificate of Capacity in respect of the adult or the Certificate of Incapacity is revoked. The PGT may also cease to act where it receives a copy of a court order appointing another property guardian or discharging the PGT from his or her duties. The PGT will also cease to act when the adult dies. However, the PGT may take what steps it deems necessary to protect the adult's property until someone is appointed to administer the deceased adult's estate.

When the PGT ceases to act as property guardian, the PGT releases the property it is holding to the adult, another property guardian, or the executor or administrator of a deceased client's estate, and provides an accounting. The PGT also advises any companies or agencies that it has been dealing with on behalf of the adult that the PGT is no longer involved. In the case of a deceased client, the PGT will generally require the executor or administrator to obtain Letters Probate, Letters of Administration, or a court order under section 9 of The Administration of Estates Act prior to releasing property to the executor or administrator.
