Quick grammar/usage question. Which is the preferred usage: "I'm buying this property on their behalf
," or "I'm buying this property on their behalves

The former seems right to me, and I'm surprised that "behalves" is even a word (according to the 1986 unabridged Webster's in my office, it is). My usage guide is silent on the issue. Any thoughts?
