Hi, thank you for your question. Are you married to your partner and has the property been purchased yet? How much is she funding initially?
Apologies, I am not sure how it got posted to your question as it was meant for a different one! I will opt-out an a Scots Law colleague will assist you.
Thanks for your question. As you are under 60 and presumably not incapacitated, the local authority can take your mother's house into account when assessing care home fees so you haven't automatic right to remain in your mother's house. The local authority have a discretion to disregard it in certain circumstances, where for example you gave up your own accommodation to come back and look after your mother although that doesn't seem to be the case here. In practice they will disregard the house for 12 weeks so you have about 3 months to move on I'm afraid. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
