I am a carer for my elderly mum and also received Income support and housing benefit.My income support was suspended in dec whilst they made a decision on a form i had completed regarding a property that i previously lived in with my ex husband.I moved out in 2012, i pay nothing towards the mortgage, bills etc.My income support was restarted at the beginning of January.However last week they have stopped my IS and HB stating i have assets of £16000. Grateful for advice.Thankyou
