From this do I take it that the value of the plot cannot be included in the cost of the new build to be set against the sale price for Capital Gains tax. Why should this be different to selling just the plot? If I had bought a plot solely to build a bungalow on then surely this would come under construction costs but I have already bought that plot as part of my property several years ago.
