Received this morning a response for clarification on refusal of funding from NYCC saying as I arranged to admit my mother to a private EMI home in preference to a place in an EMI home owned and managed by NYCC, and we are having to sell mother's house to pay for this, she will not be a permanent NYCC resident and will not be entitled to the 12 week property disregard. This is the first written communication I have received, others being by telephone from mother's care manager which had a completely different interpretation to this. I thought the 12 week deferment was "a right" for all residents who didn't have available cash and had to sell their property. The cost of our chosen home is more than the "allowance" but we knew this and were prepared to pay the top-up. However, we are now having to take out a loan to cover all the costs until the property is sold, whenever they will happen. Anyone else had similar experiences? Any help appreciated.
