Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you
If you are a joint owner of the property and you live there with her then no you cannot be forced to sell the property if she needs to go into a Care Home
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
My apologies I have been away from the computer
I am afraid that if you are not residing full time in the property then it will indeed have to be sold.
Unless you can move in permanently for the foreseeable future
I wish there was a way around this but there is not - despite the many and expensive options that are advertised.
However your share of the Proceeds of Sale are safe
It is too late for that I am afraid - the Local Authority will view it as deliberate deprivation of assets
