I'm really worried. My partner bought a home years ago. His mother is on the deeds only. She has not made any payment on the house and has not lived there in 20 years.she did it solely to help my partner get onto the property ladder. The mortgage is fully paid now. Me, my partner and our 3 children live in the home. I have lived there over 15 years and significantly contributed to the property. His mum has dementia. We are doing everything to help her but we are struggling and she is close to requiring 24 hour care. My partner is now too old to get a mortage and I am concerned that we will have to sell our family home. If we sold, and the assets went to his mums care we couldn't afford another home. But we have needed to move as the home is too small for our family. We literally couldn't do it. What can we do? Is there anyway we can protect ourselves and our family. I know she wouldn't want our home sold to pay for her care as she doesnt consider it to be her home.
