      thought it would be police matter but they say it could have been consensual. Without their help we canít see if any misappropriation of his funds.
      solicitor who signed Will does not appear to have followed the golden rule with any official competence checks. Also third party could have written will, definitely made appointment.

          If the vulnerable person is still alive, the Office of Public Guardian supervises deputies and a report raising concerns can be filed with it
