I had already reviewed document SP02/04 but it didn't seem to answer my question - which was why I contacted you. The GBP 8000 limit (on the asset value of >GBP 1 million) is below the actual (itemized) legal fees (GBP13K) associated directly with the sale of the asset but the costs of obtaining Probate are probably around GBP8000. Should I be able to claim both amounts (ie 13K + 8K) against the gain, for the CGT calculation?
