The Official Solicitor and Public Trustee, is administered as part of the
Department for Constitutional Affairs. The Official Solicitor is part of the
judicial system of England and Wales (excluding Scotland and Northern Ireland),
while the Public Trustee is a separate and independent statutory body, and both
are appointed by the Lord Chancellor. The Official Solicitor acts for people
who, because they lack mental capacity and cannot properly manage their own
affairs, are unable to represent themselves and no other suitable person or
agency is able and willing to act. He usually becomes formally involved when
appointed by the Court, and he may act as his own solicitor, or instruct a
private firm of solicitors to act for him. The Public Trustee may act as
executor when requested to do so, but, may also act as administrator of an
estate of a deceased person (with or without a will), or as trustee of a trust
whether as original or substitute trustee, usually only as a last resort, and in
the interests of vulnerable individuals or persons under disability, or where
there are differences between executors, trustees, or beneficiaries.
