Thanks for your question, I am Sam and I am one of the UK experts here on Just Answer.
Could you advise
1) When did you start to rent this out (month and year)and
2) what was the purpose of leaving this owned property, to rent elsewhere?
3) Will you move back into the property prior to sale, and
4)have you declared all the rental income to HMRC ?
With this information, I can then advise your capital gain position.
we rented it out to go travelling and then did not want to return to that area so we rented elsewhere.
we may not move back before selling depending on the tax position but its unlikely in any event.
its been rented out since july 2011
all income has been declared.
