Im currently a carer for my wife, have been for many years. Bobbing along in a carers bubble. Lost my job,house,physical and mental health is deteriorating.
Rent privately, on carers, wife on DLA daughter on top level pip.wife been given a 50% chance of surviving 2 years.
Dad passed recently leaving a share of a house,value 50k ish.
Questions. How does this effect benefits? No HB poll tax for sure. What about Esa, child tax credits carers pip dla?
Secondly if i were to invest in a buy to let property work part time and move to a cheaper property what benefits would i be entitled to with an additional income coming in.
Anyone with any unconventional suggestions on capital retention? Ideas most welcome!
