Hi Thanks for your question It all depends on whether you have rented this property out and whether these costs have already been taken into account against the rental income.Usually the boiler and the double glazing would already have been sued in such a way - so we just really should have a complete refurb of bathroom and kitchen to consider. Then if this has ever been your main residence then you may be entitled to tax reliefs to reduce the capital gain, and also an additional relief if you let it out and declared all rental income to HMRC Also why is the value an estimated one ? When was this purchased and how much for ? So please advsie further Thanks Sam
