Case Study 2 – Client Moving into a Care Home and Property Disposal

A client of the instructing solicitor went into a care home having given the solicitor power of attorney to deal with her affairs. There were no relatives.

girlmonday2friday were able to give the following support:

We visited the property and collected items of clothing and personal items to take to the client in the care home, having labelled the items and catalogued them. We continued to carry out personal shopping for the client whilst she remained in the care home.
girlmonday2friday collated all her paperwork and passed on all relevant items requiring attention to her solicitor.
When it was confirmed that the client would not be returning to her home, we discussed with her solicitor and the senior care staff at the home what additional clothing or personal items might be required in the long term. We then arranged disposal of all the remaining items, including furniture, via an auction house, arranging donations to charities where instructed, recycling unwanted items as appropriate and preparing her property for sale.
We then arranged market appraisals of the property by several estate agents and then oversaw the sale process through to completion.
