Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. If the Property was transferred to your husband neither his mother nor his brother has any claim on it. It goes to you as your husband’s beneficiary and that is the end of it as far as I can see. The care home issue is a risk that his mother took at the time of the transfer and certainly can’t affect you. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
No they can’t claim the house back. The local authority can refuse to pay the cost of care on the basis that the person has deprived themselves of the capital. That however is not a matter for you; you have inherited the house.
