Care Fees


When a relative or friend requires permanent residential care it is, more often than not, an extremely distressing time. If either a relative or friend has been incapable of looking after themselves for some time, it may have been that assistance was provided in other ways prior to being assessed as requiring permanent residential care. There are of course both emotional and financial consequences to such a move. An individual is normally required to pay their care fees if their capital exceeds a certain level. There is always a risk that this can affect not only your savings, but also the house that you own.

There are many popular myths surrounding this area of law, such as if you gift your property to relatives then it will not be included in any local authority assessment. This is not the case and there are many detailed regulations dealing with assessment of capital.

At Allington Hughes, we can advise as to the protection of your assets but we have particular experience in dealing with the local authority during an assessment process. We have successfully argued that properties should not be sold in certain.
How can we help?
