Cate Searle / RG, legal assistant in private client & Deputy team, SW England
“Thanks to your recent course my client now has nearly £6,000 back in his account. The Local Authority were not interested in CRAG in relation to my 12 week property disregard argument.
However, I also used your quote from Care & Support Statuary Guidance Annex B asking for discretion and discretion is what I got! Not the full fees but £492 per week, the LA rate and therefore a significant refund.
If I hadn’t been on your course, I would have taken the Local Authority’s word for it that because my client was just over the threshold on the date that he became a permanent resident then he was not entitled to the 12 week property disregard. Many, many thanks.”
