Then yes you will have a capital gain if you sell it, and its more than 18 months after leaving the property - however, if you come back to it within 3 years - and then sell at a later date then that 3 years can be exempted under the private residence relief rules which allwos a period of anything up to 3 years for any reason, but the imperative key is that you would have to take back up residence in the property
