Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Was the agreement recorded in writing at all?
What is the exact wording regarding her right to live in the property?
Are you sure that the words were "has her day" - or was that what you understood them to mean?
That is fine - ignore the pop ups!
Was it prepared by a solicitor?
In that case I am confused by the ambiguity of the wording.
What does the Restriction on the Register say?
All of the thread is covered by the one payment please do not worry.
I am concerned about the wording as that is the crucial point.
Working with your memory of "has her day" I would say that the fact that she has moved out into alternative secure accommodation fulfils that requirement and on that basis you can now deal with the property anyway you wish.
had it said "for the rest of her life" then clearly you would have possibly had to rent the property out and pay any profit to her care.
Accordingly UNLESS the Register says you need her specific consent to a sale then there is no reason why you should not go ahead now
Please ask if you need further details
