My mum bought her council flat and changed the title deeds

This answer was rated:

My mum bought her council flat and changed the title deeds into her daughter and son-in-laws name should this alter her benefits as she is now concerned that the council is still under the impression she still owns the house.
Thank you for your question.

Is she receiving benefits in connection with the house? If so what?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

council tax benefit and pension credit.

These benefits are decedent on your mother's income and saving. Whether or not she owns the house should not affect these unless she received a price for the house which has increased her savings.
