I am legally separated but not divorced. I am a self-funded retiree.

My husband is on the pension and we own separate houses. If he was to sell his house and build a granny flat at the back of my house, would he still get the pension?

What would happen if:

1. He had to go into nursing home?

2. He got into financial trouble.?

3. Would he pay for the build and give me rent for the land?

4. How would our wills be worded?

Thank you
