PROTECT YOUR FAMILY'S INHERITANCE
Part 1: The Cost of Residential Care
Vital information for couples at or near retiral.
Chances are you already know of someone who, later in life, has had to go into care for health reasons... What is perhaps not so well known is that the cost of this care can dramatically reduce the value of your estate.
This means that the value of your home plus any savings you might have put by could be at risk and as a result your children's inheritance could also be in jeopardy!
Free Initial Meeting with a Family Law ExpertIt doesn’t need to be that way, by attending a free initial meeting with our partner David Kilshaw you will learn about the issues involved from an expert. David chaired the Borders Health Board for ten years and was awarded an OBE for his contribution to health services in the Borders. As an experienced family lawyer who has worked in the health sector at a senior level, he is very well placed to advise you on the complexities of care home fees, and the way in which this area is being dealt with by the health board and the local authority.
Given the complexity of the law in this area, and recent changes that have taken place, it is not possible to provide general advice on how best to take matters forward as the circumstances of individual families are all different.
Our free initial meeting covers will preparation and your children’s inheritance, the way in which title to your property is held and the benefit of putting into place Powers of Attorney. All of these topics are highly relevant to couples at or near retirement, particularly if you have now paid off your mortgage.
It is no exaggeration to say that action taken now has the capacity to protect a large share of your children’s inheritance. If you would like to know more, please request a free initial meeting and one of our family law team will be in touch to arrange a suitable appointment.
