    Absolutely astonishing.
    That has to be complete bollocks. Next time you are on a train look out the window and see if you think every house you can spot is worthless.
    Its quite handy for the family though - the mother is in care, the house is worthless (so it can be transferred to the family with no tax liability). Because the mother has no assets she'll get free care.
