I have got a question concerning my tax return year

Resolved Question:

I have got a question concerning my tax return for the year 2014-2015. I have been resident in the UK for the last 10 year, but left the UK in January this year to live abroad. I have retired and I do not have any income fro the UK. I know that I have to fill in a tax return for the year 2014-15 and I cannot claim split year treatment because I still have a property in the UK. My question is: Shall I claim to be not resident in the UK for that year? if yes, what do I answer to the following questions?:
Were you resident in the UK for 2013-14? Yes.
Did you meet the third automatic overseas test: I do now (since 6 April 2015), but not before. What do I answer here?
Did you have a home overseas in 2014-15? Yes
How many ties to the UK did you have in 2014-15? Since 6 April 2015 I have 2, but many before.
How many days have you spent in the UK?Until January 2015 all the time but since that date none. What do I answer there?
Kind regards
