Are you an executor, insolvency practitioner or a family member looking after your client’s/family member’s home? Are you looking to keep the family home and perhaps rent it out to trustworthy tenants who will look after it or care for it? Is the family home empty with no direct family around to pop in to make sure everything is still ok?
For whatever reason, moving out of the family home can be a very emotional process, with memories in every nook and cranny. If it is no longer possible for you or a loved one to stay in the family home and you/they do need to leave and the decision is to rent, then Chapmans have particular experience in dealing with properties whose owner is in their later years or is incapacitated and has gone/is going into care.
Laura is also a founding member of the Edinburgh Care Forum. Her role in the forum is offering help and advice to individuals and families as to the best option for what to do with the property/family home when the owner is going into care.
