“…it is estimated that over 60,000 elderly people
each year are being forced to sell their homes to finance Care Fees.”*
IF YOU OWN YOUR HOME AND YOU EVER HAVE TO GO INTO CARE,
YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR CARE FEES IN FULL!
Under the terms of the Community Care Act (1990), if you have assets of over £23,000 including the value of your home and savings, you have to pay for all your Residential Care Fees!
Why should your children lose part or all of their inheritance,
just because of unfair Government Policy.
The good news for couples living in England and Wales is that, with the right advice, there is a way to protect at least half the value of the family home and keep it for the children. This is achieved by writing your Will in such a way that it puts half the family home into a type of Trust when the first spouse or civil partner dies. The terms of the Trust also mean that the surviving spouse or civil partner can continue to live in the property held within the Trust.
