Ensures the customer’s chosen beneficiaries inherit their home
Shaw Lifetime Care secures these services by taking a lease on the customer’s home and then granting the customer or their beneficiaries. The right to terminate the lease any time subject to payment of a lease break fee
Provides the customer with a schedule showing the cost of the lease break fee each year until it has reduced to nil (typically after 10 years).
Overcomes the limitations of the Government’s Deferred Payment Agreement ( DPA ). DPAs offer an alternative way of paying care home fees with the wealth in your house without selling your house.
