My dad has recently gone into a care home. He has some savings and owns half of a house. The other half has been left in trust to my sister and I. My question is, can I safely part fund the fees until the house is sold and then claim back the money I have paid when the sale goes through. I will keep thorough records of all of my expenditures and receipts? I have LPA for my dad.

A lot will depend on the trust arrangement.
Are your names on the deeds?
How did you come by your half?

You might be better with a deferded payment agreement with the home
