Some of these issue (but not all) could be avoided by putting the property into a trust. However, trusts can be expensive and burdensome to set up and administer. Specialist advice should be taken before going down this route.
Consider other alternatives for what you are trying to achieve. For example, if you wish to ensure that a certain person will eventually receive your property, you could achieve this by making a will. If you are worried about responsibilities of home ownership in the future, a Lasting Power of Attorney may be more suitable.
If you own a property jointly with someone else, consider making a will gifting your share of the property into a life interest trust when you die and making provision for the survivor to carry on living there rent free for the rest of their life. Only the survivor’s share of the property could be taken into account for home care fees should the survivor then go into a care home. The other share would belong to the trust.
