Protect Your Family’s Inheritance Against Care Home Fees We spend our working lives providing for our families, paying taxes and saving for retirement. Many of us fear that our children’s inheritance will be lost to pay for Care Home fees in later life. The 7 Year Myth Some people believe that transferring their home into their children’s names prevents the Local Authority from including the property in their assessment for care fees if the gift was made more than 7 years ago. THIS IS A MYTH. The so-called “7 year rule” does not apply to Local Authority means tests for care fees. Property Protection Trust Wills The Wills and Trusts Lawyer can enable you to legally safeguard at least 50% of the value of your home being lost to fund care home fees. The cost is just £575 per couple – typically around only one week’s care home fees.

Wills from £90 Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) from £120 for one or £195 for both

Full Probate / Estate Administration from £1495 Concerned care fees may reduce your family’s inheritance? Plan ahead and achieve peace of mind today with
