Much of the money from my mother's house went on care home fees.
Our situation is that we are second time married. We own our home as tenants in common with my husband leaving his share of the house to his children and me to mine. The surviving partner has the right to live in the house as long as it is maintained. We have a joint account for bills but all our savings are kept separate and left to our children, not each other.
Does this sound sensible please?
