Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear of your situation. Is your mother still living in the house, if so then the house cannot be sold while she is still living in it, however the local authority can in certain cases, place a charge on the property to cover the cost of the fees, but the house won't be sold if your mother still lives there, or any other adult over 60.
I mean if your father needs to pay care fees and his assets are not enough then the local authority will include half the value of the house as belonging to him, but because your mother is still living in the house it cannot be sold, so they will place a charge or loan against the house to eventually be paid when the house is sold even if it takes 20 years.
Hello do you need any further assistance?
