• 43 Million people in the UK (65% of the population) spend 20 - 30 years saving to buy their own home.
• So it’s not surprising that many of the 50,000 a year who have to sell it to pay their care home fees would prefer an alternative whereby their home funded their care home fees without having to sell it - so they could pass it on to their family once it has paid their care fees home fees. But there isn’t a way – or wasn’t.
• Until Shaw Foundation launched the CHIP in the summer of 2020.
• The Care and Home Inheritance Plan (CHIP) enables a customer to meet the gap between care home fees ( say £50,000 a year ) and pensions income ( say £10,000 – 20,000 a year) with the wealth from the customer’s house.
• The customer grants Shaw a long lease and Shaw pays for this lease by covering the care fees gap for the rest of the customer’s life.
• Shaw renovates and lets the property and applies the rent to repay the costs borrowed from the property. When the rent has repaid the money borrowed, the beneficiaries can break the lease for nil cost and thus inherit the house debt free. If the beneficiaries wish to break the lease before rent has repaid the money borrowed , they can do so by paying off the outstanding loan.
• The CHIP was launched in 2020: CHIP 2 ( which will fund lifetime care in someone’s own home rather than a care home ) will be launched in 2021.
