I currently work 35 hours but it's becoming harder and harder to continue. We have a mortgage on our home but I also own another property that I rent out. Would this affect any esa I'm entitled to.

    The only ESA you can claim is 'new style' ESA which is a contribution based benefit. It is not affected by other income or capital so your second property will not matter.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
