Thank you for your question..
You moved out of the property 5 years ago.. some periods of absence still qualify for relief.
In your case absences for whatever reason, totalling not more than 3 years in all would qualify for private residence relief.
Additionally, last 18 months of ownership would qualify as the property was your main residence at some point during period of ownership.
The above covers 54 of 60 months and six months period out of a total of 120 months would be chargeable to CGT (about 7% of the gain).
This is likely to be covered by gains annual allowance of £11,100.
More information on private residence relief is covered here
