Hi. I'm assuming the property was never your main home. You will make a gain of £25,000 which can be reduced by the expenses you incurred on purchase and will incur on sale (legal fees, stamp duty (none at a guess), survey fees, selling agent fees). The first £11,100 of the gain will be tax free so that will leave a net taxable gain of £13,900. There are two rates of CGT, 18% and 28%. The rate or combination of rates that you will pay is dependent on the level of your income in the tax year you sell the flat. The most that can be taxed at 18% in 2016/17 is £32,000 but that will be reduced by £1 for each £1 of income you have in excess of £11,000. Any balance of the net taxable gain not taxed at 18% will be taxed at 28%. There has been no taper relief since 6 April 2008. Your CGT liability will be somewhere between £2,502.00 (18%) and £3,892.00 (28%). I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

I am sorry I dont understand the detail this may help you in assesing approximatly how much I will need to pay on prop sale at 45000 thanks again

If your income in 2016/17 is about £11,100, then you will pay income tax on £100, maybe less a your rental income won't be received for a full tax year. That will mean that all the net taxable gain of £13,900 will be taxed at 18% so you should pay around £2,502 in CGT.
