so you think I should fill in the part of my self assessment that asks about capital gains and it should calculated 0 tax due ?
It was my home for 31 months then let for 30 months
during my time of living in it I converted the loft to make a third bedroom and had the whole house rewired. total spent during my living there £7000
The house was then empty for 4 months at the end of tenancy.
House bought £90k sold for £98K.
No, you merely declare the 8K gain and HMRC will allow the AEA automatically in the absence of any other capital gains. The conversion counts as an improvement and inflates the acquisition price for CGT so, if you have not taken it into account in the 8K, your actual gain is a mere 1K.
In your case you can forget about the period let; the gain is so low that those various elements do not come into play at all.
