My mother i law is thinking about selling her house basically to put money in the bank, which i think is a stupid reason to move. Anyway first of all if the fil is not fully with it now could she sell without his permission? Also if she did sell that would make her self funding, well him actually as it is him that has the problems.So when he did have to actually go into a home would those in higher places want to know where his half of the gains had went .I dont know if im getting my point across here or not. so say that if she sold and downsized and was left with enough money wouldnt she have to pay any full rate for any care that she is currently getting a allowance for? And by law could she sell without having his permission as its unlikely he would be able to give it?
