Its possible the PIP scores will be amended as its almost impossible to score 12 or more.
This Condem alliance is looking at the costs of disability payments and not the social effect, so all they see is a cost saving, they dont care about Motability leasing and would be happy to see it go.
The sad part is that the largest opposittion party, Labour, is very quiet about what they would do if elected, no announcemet to change or remove pIP from them!
Well my five year lease hire motability car runs out in November this year.
The replacement I'd go for is the new Renault Scenic auto (as it meets my access needs perfectly), with a current deposit of about £2600. However if I were to be reassessed in January 2014 (at the earliest), they may give me the lower rate mobility and withdraw the vehicle after 14 months!
I'm expecting that the resale value of my Motability vehicle will be about £3,500 by November so it makes more sense to me to purchase the vehicle in November and keep it until I know the lay of the land otherwise I'll be seriously out of pocket.
Seems everyone will have to do what those of us who cannot drive or are not allowed to, use taxis. I can see Mobility closing as who will they serve?
What happens to all the cars taken back?
