Paying for care: Deferred Payment Agreements

How to enter an agreement

An application will need to be completed, which we can support you with.

During this process, we will discuss and agree the amount you wish to defer as well as other details.

We will aim to finalise the agreement by the end of the 12-week property disregard period, or within 12 weeks of your request.

If you are signing the paperwork on behalf of someone else, for example, as their appointed Attorney or Deputy, you will need to provide us with the original court paperwork.

This is needed to place the legal charge on the property and will not be returned until this is complete.
