Thank you for your question.

The answer is in fact "maybe".
The CSA have no claim on capital as such - selling land is not seen as "income"
However if there are arrears then the capital may be at risk - and if the sale proceeds means that you have assets worth more than £65,000 - other than your home - then the CSA will assume a notional income from those assets of 8% per annum and will assess that income accordingly
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
