A gift is a permanent transaction and cannot be overturned. It is as effective as if you bought the property for good value. The only circumstances where the gift can be overturned is in situations where the donor lacked capacity to understand the nature of the gift, or was insolvent at the time of the gift. Gifts within 5 years of needing rest home subsidies can also be set aside.
