I'm on ESA and DLA.
I own my own 2nd floor flat outright. It doesn't have a lift and I anticipate difficulties moving forwards with access.
I am due a relatively modest inheritance (10s of k).
I will lose ESA but not DLA I believe ( not means tested) so I wondered if I could sell and put inheritance with it to buying another property ( it'd likely be more £ for better access etc). If I dont it will go in a few years of living expenses and Ill be stuck.
Can I do so without losing my ESA or will they say I should have used the inheritance to live on?
If I keep my ESA, how long do I have to sell then buy before losing it
Thanks in advance.
NB there is a similar thread from 2016 but would like confirmation of current regs.
