Reply To: Capital Value of previous home disregarded or not

All fair points Peter. There have been post Jacobs decisions but mostly obiter. I think the general principle at play is that it’s open to a tribunal to look at the evidence; take account of the Jacobs decision (they cannot disregard it) but then decide that its proposal doesn’t necessarily produce a different outcome on the facts of the case they’re looking at. In my experience that’s generally where tribunals go with this.
