Partner's mother signed house into his name 10 years ago. Part of that agreement was that she would not have to go into a care home if she didn't want to (right of residency?) She is now 91 and he has been looking after her all this time, now it's getting too much and dementia is setting in. Is there a way round this sort of agreement? (Scots Law)
I have not seen the actual document drawn up by the solicitor, but the main point is that she can stay in her own home as long as she wants - that is she doesn't have to go into a care home if she doesn't want to. I have been told this is right to residency.
