    HI,

    If your ESA is Income Related then sabings of £6,000 and over will affect your ESA £1 for every £250 over that amount.

    If you buy the flat then you won't be able to claim for help with the rent. A home that you live in isn't classed as capital and is ignored for all means tested benefits.
