    Hi Michael,

    Welcome to the community, and sorry to hear your having such a tough time.

    What reason did they give for not doing a home assessment? How have things been left with them?

    You would most likely need a letter from your daughters GP stating the reasons why a home assessment is needed.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
