I am moving. I need to spend money on repairs and furnishings. How to proceed safely?
I am on Income related ESA and PIP ( but not yet full mobility part, appeal next wednesday for that). I don't want to lose money I need to do repairs and replace boiler etc in my new home and know I need to keep receipts. This advice is too vague. Is there something about this I can read somewhere? What costs and I allowed to have which I won't be penalised for. The advisor at DWP said 'don't buy a holiday in Barbados but you can buy carpet and furnishing, decorating etc.' Happy to trust this advice but do need more official written detail. If you don't pin agreements down doubly in this life it can be a mistake. advice please and thanks so much for being here.
