My parent has been told that they need to go into a care home. They owns their own home but I helped to buy it. What will happen to my share if it has to be sold?
You should be able to argue that you have a beneficial interest in the property providing you have evidence to show that you contributed to the original purchase price, otherwise your claim may be more difficult to argue. When entering into arrangements of this sort with a family member it is always best to make sure that either your name is included on the title deeds or alternatively that there is a formal trust deed. You may need to take legal advice.
