Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a mental sick son and I have to put his house and car in my name. Now I am 65 years and want to apply to age pension. What can I do with Adrian's house and car??? Can I put all into disability trust??? He can't have something in his name because people can trick him and he sign documents or sell them for nothing. It's happened before.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

NSW - Coffs Harbour

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Perpetual trustee is managing the disability paymeny

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Adrian is 40 years old and has a very bad mental illness

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
