I am in NI so it may be slightly different but think they have done this wrong. My dad was self funding but now his savings have run down we asked to be rassessed, were told his contribution would now be very minimal. He now has only about £15k in savings. He has a house which is about to be put up for sale, on which there is still a small mortgage. He would also have some expenses on the house such as rates and insurance until the house is sold But they have put his expenses done as zero.
