My client is the court appointed deputy of her father who has lost capacity and is in a care home. The father owns a house which his son resides in with his wife. They have been there for over 20 years.
My client now needs to sell the house to pay for on-going care home fees for the father. The father’s son and partner are in occupation will not leave. There is no tenancy agreement and there is no rent being paid.
What is the procedure to evict the son so that the deputy can sell the property? What notice would need to be provided?
