On the basis that you are still married then you wife has a potential interest in the property. She would have an interest subject to her seeking a divorce, but from what you write this is not what she seeks. I would suggest that you may wish to seek a solicitor who specialises in court of protection work to obtain legal authority to formally act on her behalf.

If you divorce then your wife is entitled to at least half of everything. This would also enclose the rents. She would also be entitled to a share of any interests which you have. I raised the issue of another solicitor simply to assist with regard to the drafting of an appropriate power of attorney. A power of attorney gives the attorney the legal authority to deal with third parties such as banks or the local council. Some types of power of attorney also give the attorney the legal power to make a decision on behalf of someone else such as where they should live or whether they should see a doctor.Happy to discuss but please rate positive.
