2nd property value disregard if court order specifies cannot return
I have a client who is due to be released from prison soon
She jointly owns a property with her mother.
A part of the release specifies she cannot return to live at the property.
She has no choice but to claim UC & rent privately on release.
My question is would UC disregard the value interest in the property?
I cant seem to find that exemption in the DRH or CPAG.
How old is mum?
She’s SRP age
And one more question for the avoidance of doubt: does the mother live in the property? If yes it is disregarded as capital under para 2 of Schedule 10 to the UC Regs (see also the definition of “close relative” in Reg 2)
