Care Fees Cap Delayed to 2020


I’m a little late reporting this, but the famous care fees cap reported in my previous blogs, initially to be introduced next April, has been postponed until 2020. Critics are calling it another broken promise by the Government, who significantly watered down the original proposals in the first place. People have begun to plan for introduction of the care fees cap, but are now finding their plans must change.  People continue to be nervous about losing their homes. Those in favour, surprisingly including charities such as Age UK, rightly point out that the social care system is already collapsing and is unsustainable, and therefore that the cap on care fees would have been a distraction and possibly caused further damage. Whichever side you land on, it remains important to get advice from suitably qualified people.   If you are concerned about care fees, please contact a member of our Private Client team  on 01623 451111, or email rhoward@fidler.co.uk.
