ALRC Report 52 (tabled December 1989) considered the difference between management of property and guardianship and highlighted many procedural defects, which were expensive and insensitive, particularly in the application of guardians or managers of property.

Guardianship and Management of Property (ALRC Report 52) found many substantive defects in the law as the Lunacy Act 1898 (NSW) was not comprehensive in its coverage and there was no mechanism for periodic review of orders or provisions. The ALRC concluded that legislative change was necessary.
