Section 44: Resident ceasing to be resident of authorised establishment
160.Subsection (1) provides that when a resident leaves an authorised establishment or gains capacity to look after their own affairs the managers of that establishment may continue to manage the resident's affairs for up to 3 months to enable other suitable arrangements to be made.
161.Subsection (2) requires the managers to provide a financial statement of the resident’s affairs after the transitional period in subsection (1).
