Would my grandfather be liable to pay for the damage he caused to his care home if he has not signed a contract in relation to him being there?
Hi there, my grandad has recently gone into a care home (council arranged and funded for the first 6 weeks) whilst he awaits a dementia diagnosis. He has taken the door handles off and caused some damage to the home. Would he/the family be liable to pay for the repair? No contract has been signed by himself/family in relation to him being there.
