Does anyone have any experience of dealing with a Council re property matters? Our Mum has been in a care home for 4 years now and is very well looked after, I would say she is in an advanced state, she's had dementia for around 7-8 years now. Mum's money has shrunk to around £20k now, the council assessed her and as my brother and his wife (aged 60) live in Mum and Dad's house (dad died in 2010) the council disregarded the property in June 2014, they have now revoked that decision. I am trying to understand how they can do this, regardless of new guidelines from April 2015 in the care act. I'm probably fighting a losing battle but just trying to get a meeting with someone is proving impossible, passed from pillar to post with no one taking ownership. It's very frustrating so thought I'd ask on here. Thanks in advance.
