How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
During this time her son went into care but under the paying threshold. He died a year or so after his mum. Now he was of sound mind just his body was failing.
Sadly he past and we settled up any loose ends. He used to write his own check so he dealt with all his finances. And his friend who was a solicitor was in charge of any wills and bits and pieces. So care home is happy the end.
2 years nearly later the care home is demanding Money for is care. Now there was his mum's house and it was sold about 11/2 years after he passed but before we were made aware of any fees supposedly owing as again he dealt with his finances.
So it was sold and split between everyone in the family left. But there still adamant he owed Money. If we would have know could have sorted then split the remainder. The problem is now bulk of the money is long gone If any left as the 9 people have used it for house deposits and family cars etc. So we're do we stand as we were never aware we owed anything. And I can definitely say none of us aren't willing to take loads or remortgage in today's climate etc.
