Buying furniture and things but no repairs yet.

I am afraid that in that case there is indeed a risk that you will have to leave the property so that it can be sold to pay for his care if he goes into a home in the next nine years.Once you are over 60 then the property will be disregarded, but until then you are at riskI hope that this is of assistance please ask if you need further detailsClare
