is this because 5 months is too short a period to establish the property as a private residence eligible for PPR relief?
Norman, thank you for your reply.5 months may not be too short a period to establish the property as a private residence eligible for PPR relief if factors support it.HMRC would consider these to support your claim for PPR- you should have made it a main residence with an intention to stay there permanently. - you should communicate your intention to HMRC within given time frame that this property is your main residence.- you should be on the local council electoral roll and pay council tax on that property.- notify Royal Mail of change of address- notify bank of change of address etc etcBased on facts provided, I don't think you have a strong case to claim PPR on this property, I'm afraid.I wish I could give you more favourable news.I hope this is helpful
