That is the argument I used at the final hearing and was shot down in flames! My barrister said it was simple to get benefits . I must say I got very very upset as I could not make her understand anything. Even house prices she said it was easy to knock them down 20k, which I am not so sure about!
House to go on market immediately and I will receive half approx. 100k. The house next door has not been sold in 14 months so I do not think mine will sell quickly. If it does not sell my 40k maintenance will reduce and I am worried about not having enough to buy a house. I cannot work for 3 years and may only be able to start very gradually.
That is my worry £175k from £190k is 15k and that will get eaten up quite quickly as you say in c. tax etc. If I live with my son I would not have as many bills to pay.
Sorry sounds confusing but I am just trying to sort out a plan to protect myself and not leave myself in dire straits.
My ex was also a control freak and I am very worried re having to sort out house price etc for my personally I feel just easier to buy him out and go on benefits!

I don’t condone going on benefits

I have a debilitating medical condition and I work full time, albeit struggling

Just sell up and buy what you can afford with a job you can manage

If you have worked and paid enough stamps you should be looking at getting contribution based benefits if savings etc put you over the limit for income based. You will of course have to go for assessment etc.

Just because one person can work with debilitating medical condition does not mean we all can so don't let that put you off.
