Not sure which MSE forum is best for this question but any help and direction appreciated ...
I'm in receipt of UC with LCWRA, enhanced PIP, and I own my own home. 
My partner would at some point like to sell her home, buy a share of my property and cohabit. She is my carer and in addition works 23 hours per week earning £13k per year. In doing so however I would lose my UC income.
We would be allowed to sell my property and use both proceeds to buy jointly and maintain a joint UC claim.
However would she be permitted to place her house sale proceeds into a vulnerable persons discretionary trust to which I would be the sole beneficiary, and I would grant her a commensurate share of my property.
Thank you.
