Thank you for your question.If this is not your main residence then the whole gain would be chargeable to CGT. If you have lived in the property as your main residence for a period since the property was left to you and your sibling then there would be some relief avialable for private residence.Please advise me what the value of the property was at the time of your parents' death and what the value is now. many thanks

Nick, thank you for your prompt reply.You have not stated if the property was your main residence at any point between 2011 and now. My calculations are based on the assumption it has remained a second home since your parents' demise.Gain (increase in value) £75,000As there are two owners now, both would be entitled to gains annual allowance of £11,100 eachShare 1 (75,000 x 75%) 56,250Chargeable gain (56,250-11,100) £45,150CGT rate of 18%, 28% or a combination of both depending on total taxable income including the gain in the year of saleMaximum CGT 45,150 x 28% £12,650Share 2 (75,000 x 25%) 18,750Chargeable gain (18,750-11,100) £7,650CGT rate of 18%, 28% or a combination of both depending on total taxable income including the gain in the year of saleMaximum CGT 7,650 x 28% £2,142Total maximum CGT payable (12,650+2,142) £14,792 I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
