    There is advice on the citizens advice site that should help you - link above If you have any questions then i recommend contacting the Office of Public Guardian, who register the LPA's. Your solicitor will also be able to provide advice and guidance as they will deal with the property purchase and also have experience of LPA's (they can set them up for a fee)

    I am sure that you can. I moved my self funding mum from one county 150 miles away to my county. Good luck with it all. I think it's a good idea - it worked well for me and enabled me to care much better.

    not sure, but my Dad was in residential care, fully funded by ss and mum wanted to sell up and move here to be nearer me, myself and Mum had LPA, Mum was only allowed half of the value of selling and Dad was given half. Their house was ex council and not worth a lot so it basiacally meant Mum came out with 20k once all the selling was done, Dad then had to pay an amount towards his care as he then had savings, it wasnt much though. Mum got a council pensioners bungalow as there was nowhere near enough to buy anywhere......
