Thank you for your question.I presume this is a second home as far as you and siblings are concerned.Any gain you have made since the property was gifted to you would be chargeable to CGT.It is the gain and not the share of net proceedsIf for example the property was valued at £120,000 when it was given to you, then the gain is (160,000-120,000) £40,000 and your share is £10,000.This would be covered by your gains annual allowance and no CGT payable.As the proceeds exceeded £44,000 you would have to report the gain on SA108 but no CGT payable.

I would doubt the property has increased in value at all since 2012, if there is an increase it would be very small. Assuming that is the case then no CGT is payable?
Also, just to clarify, we would all need to individually fill in tax form SA180 to notify HMRC of the proceeds?
