With the incidence of people requiring residential care in old age increasing, taking steps to plan for the financial implications of this happening is becoming more important.
Many people want to protect their assets for the benefit of their families but complicated rules are in place that allow local authorities to disregard for example a gift if the main intention was to reduce your potential liability for care home fees.
We can advise clients of the ways in which assets may be protected such as placing your share of the family home into a trust in your will.
