HiMy 98 year old aunt was recently admitted to a care home due to suffering from dementia. I am at the moment waiting to be awarded power of attorney through the court of protection. Around five years ago she had a burglary and we think her house deeds were stored with other valuables that were stolen. After only just finding out that her house isn’t registered with the land registry I am trying to reconstruct them. Due to the fact that we might have to sell the house to pay for care home fees.
Anyway, I am filling all the forms in on her behalf. Does this mean that both of us have to provide evidence of identity? That will be fine with me but my aunt can’t travel from the home and she doesn’t have anything like a passport or driving licence. Just her birth certificate, household bills etc.
