This paper arises out of the project on adult social care and property rights that the author began at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences & Humanities (CRASSH) in Cambridge. It assesses the possible impact of the Care Act 2014 on the provision of social care for elderly and disabled adults in England, focusing particularly on the balance between ensuring adequate care and affecting the property rights of the recipients of social care, their families, and others who might have legal or moral claims to their property (especially via inheritance). The paper uses the European Convention on Human Rights to measure the Act's implications, arguing that normative problems remain despite the Act's general compatibility with the Convention.

Keywords: human rights, succession, carers, dignity
