ESA and owning a property was created by Six2eyesofblue
My wife moved out of the fmh four months ago to live with her parents. The house is in her name as it was a council house and she was the tenant. I paid cash for the house and she did not pay a penny towards it.

She is now in receipt of benefits ESA which I don't understand as she is the owner of a property which is not her substantive home. I understand that you can't claim ESA if you own a property other than the one you live in.

We are at Decree Nisi stage now
