Long term care fees

With an increasingly aging population and the health problems that come along with it, many people are now concerned about the possibilitycontact us of their home having to be sold to pay for residential care home fees and want to know if this can be avoided.

Many of us will need to enter a Nursing or Residential Care home at some point.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not always the case that the value of your property will be taken into account when assessing you for care fees, for example, if your spouse or certain other dependent relatives live in the house with you.

If you have questions about how to protect your home from potential care fee liability we offer advice on planning your estate in the most effective way possible as well as the possible implications of transferring property out of your name.

We can advise you as to the suitability of this type of action to your circumstances and also the potential risks involved.

This is a complex area and specialist legal advice should always be sought. Here at J R Jones solicitors we are experts in estate planning and can offer you advice on the most effective and tax efficient methods of arranging your property and finances.
