Deferred Payment Agreements

Deferred Payment Agreements, provided by local councils, enable eligible self-funders to use the value of their homes to help pay care home costs.

It offers a more flexible way to pay for care, particularly for people with equity tied up in property who do not have the financial assets available; because it removes the need to sell your home when moving into residential care, and effectively delays the payment of care home fees.

For self-funders, sourcing information on council’s DPA scheme is an onerous and complex task.  Valuing Care takes care of this for you, and provides advice and guidance on whether this scheme is beneficial according to your own situation.
