Do I have to sell my house?
There is a common misconception that all of us will need to sell our house in order to finance our later life care but this is far from the truth. You do not necessarily have to do this as there are options. Sometimes selling a house is the most prudent course of action and on other occasions staying in ones home is the preferred route.
How do I know if I have to pay for care myself?
This is normally referred to as a Self-Funder or Private Funder. If a persons capital /savings and or income push them outside the means test threshold they will generally be responsible for the funding of their own care fees until such time as their money falls below the appropriate threshold.
What is this threshold?
Currently in England, this stands at £23,250 (correct as of June 2021).
What is the typical process if I decide to take on your advise?
You can either telephone or email Daniel to discuss your questions with him.
Between you both it will be agreed what course of action is needed and if Daniel is required to meet with you.
Daniel offers home visits or, if more convenient, you are welcome to meet with him in his offices in Ascot.
The first initial meeting is free of charge thereafter Daniel will discuss his charges with you if you decide to take his advice.
Our fee structure is as below:
- Pay fee directly
- Pay fee from product
- Non-obligatory initial conversation without charge.
