Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. The document you need is here: http://www.sehd.scot.nhs.uk/publications/CC2016_02.pdf and you need to read the parts in chapter 7 concerned with beneficial ownership. Your argument is that the title to the house is in your mother’s name but that because you and you sister paid for it you are the beneficial owners. It would have been better that an agreement was drawn up in writing at the time you bought, and it is too late now, but that is the argument you have to put forward. Otherwise, and unless your mother has other resources to pay for, they would insist on a sale of the house to fund her care. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
