    Hello all,

    I have a claim where a 2nd property is unsaleable due to flooding. Can this property be disregarded for 26 weeks or a reasonable amount of time?


    Thanks everyone

    Gemma, you have two options.
    You can’t say it is ‘unsaleable’. The regs do not recognise such a situation.
    Your claimant can either puit it up for sale in its current condition (at a price that would reflect that) which would attract the temporary disregard, or alternatively give you a valuation based on its current condition which may be below the capital limit anyway.


    No but I don’t think it matters. If it’s flooded then the value is effectively zero. The land may be worth something though?
