Have social services assessed you or a relative as a ‘self-funder’?
Are they insisting that your park home must be sold to pay for care fees? If so, this is wrong. You do not need to sell your Park Home, call us.
If your relative lived in a park home but was forced to sell it to pay for care fees when they moved into a residential home – this is WRONG. You need to call us.
FACT – a park home is NOT a bungalow – so it cannot be treated liked a standard bricks and mortar property.
Despite this, many social workers do not understand this.
FACT – most social workers are not legal experts.
They will often treat a park home like a bungalow and if you or your relative needs to go into residential care they will often insist that it is sold, with the proceeds used to fund care fees. This is WRONG.
FACT – an obscure, little known law can help to protect your park home from being sold to pay for care home fees.
FACT – most local authorities are completely ignorant of this little known law.
FACT – the team at Steene Law have successfully helped park home residents to protect their property.
We have successfully challenged a number of local authorities who have reluctantly been forced to admit that money from the sale of certain types of park homes cannot be used to fund care home fees.
The laws which relate to park homes are extremely complex and to make things even more complicated the law in Wales is very different to the law in England.
The good news is that at Steene Law, our elder law experts are also specialists in property law and how it relates to the rules that govern means-testing and self-funding of care fees.
We will also check to see if you have been WRONGLY denied free Continuing Health Care funding – meaning that the NHS should in fact be picking up the bill for all your care.
We are available from 8am to 7pm, 365 days of the year and will explain your options including how you can fight an unfair LPA challenge.
