  1. Can you remind us what the document is please, so we don't need to re-read the whole thread? HB
  2. AgeUK on deprivation of capital/assets. https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/factsheets/fs40_deprivation_of_assets_in_social_care_fcs.pdf I think you and your parents may need to see a specialist wills and probate solicitor to talk through the ramifications of what they want to do. You can find local specialists through the Law Society website, Find a Solicitor. You can tell the site where you live and it will tell you who deals with wills and probate. HB
  3. Going back to capital gains tax, that's payable when a property that isn't your main residence is sold. https://www.which.co.uk/money/tax/capital-gains-tax/capital-gains-tax-on-property-avuq96u1500f
  4. Here's a link to HMRC about gifting property. https://www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax/passing-on-home HB
  5. Hi. You need to gather a lot of information on this. We'll do our best to help but it's possible you will need to see a lawyer. I'll go and look for information, but two things I think you should look at are 'gifts with reservation' and 'deprivation of capital'. HB
  6. Sandy, do you have any medical documents to send to Hoseasons or their insurers? As other people have said, if you expect a refund it isn't unreasonable to ask for proof of some sort. I hope your granddaughter recovers soon. HB
  7. Hi, thank you for the update. Well, DRP can't take you to court, all they can do is 'recommend to their client' to start court proceedings'. Normally DRP appear at the end of the threatogram trail, sometimes followed by Zenith. Let's see what the guys say, but I don't think you have much to worry about. HB
  8. Hi. I'm sorry about the loss of your wife's nan. I'm wondering if this might hinge on the interpretation of what 'property' means if it isn't bricks and mortar. [I'm not saying I know the answer.] To me, ornaments and articles seem to mean other items in the house. You could need a quick bit of advice from a lawyer for this unless people here are able to comment. In my experience and others here, people seem to play fast and loose with the property of the deceased if they think they can get away with it, but I would say that removing valuable items without at least declaring them for probate is an unwise thing to do. Hopefully you will have other comments. HB
  9. pinkab, don't worry that you named the driver, it isn't normally fatal. The guys can guide you through this if you follow their advice at each stage. HB
  10. TJ, I totally agree that election tampering should be investigated. I wonder if some people think that what Trump did [allegedly] with help from the Russians is wrong but don't worry about possible misbehaviour by organisations during our referendum. London, I've probably said before that I don't understand how Treeza and the ERG decided what kind of Brexit people voted for, given that the question was only Yes or No. If she hadn't decided on red lines dictated by the ERG as I understand it, we would have stood a chance of getting a decent deal.
  11. If you mean the changes last July, apart from being unpopular, I think the main issue in the area that we go to is that the 90 kph signs were removed and not replaced with 80 kph or anything else. My understanding is that if the road has one lane in either direction, you have to do 80, I think different limits apply to dual carriageways. HB
  12. Nice one. MPs are trying to get the visit cancelled, I think they could be too late if he's due here in June. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/apr/23/donald-trump-plans-state-visit-to-uk-in-june?utm_term=RWRpdG9yaWFsX0d1YXJkaWFuVG9kYXlVS19XZWVrZGF5cy0xOTA0MjQ%3D&utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GuardianTodayUK&CMP=GTUK_email
  13. Oh right, thank you. We have people here who understand local authority parking rules, hopefully they'll be along soon. I'm sorry I can't help. In case it helps, are there any signs in this car park that warn you about the charges that you were subject to? HB
  14. Hi. Can you tell us which council runs this car park please? I don't profess to be an expert but your story sounds unusual. HB
