ESA Benefit and house buying

kippers Community member Posts: 2 Listener
I am needing some advice. I am receiving income based Esa and housing benefit and live in a small one bed council flat. it is eligible for right to buy and my brother can buy it with cash. It would be my first home.
So my question is .. how do I purchase the home without my ESA stopping. If he puts that money into my bank account and i buy the home .. will my income related ESA benefit stop ? I know i am only allowed 16k savings on Esa. Are there any options so i can own my own home without my Esa stopping. Thanks
