Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
It is not necessarily the exact same- a lifetime interest means you are entitled to any income generated from the property (ie from rent) and possible also a right to live there if you so wish.
A Lifetime Occupancy just grants the right to remain living in the property for your life, subject to whatever conditions are imposed by the owner/any Trustees of the owner.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position, but please let me know if you require any further clarification.
Can I assist you any further?
If I have assisted, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
