I'm a joint home owner and separated from my wife since August 2013
We are now going to sell the property.
she is still resident and I am not .. I do not own any other property
House est value 350,000
mortgage outstanding 15,000
we've amicably agreed I take 130,000 and she has the rest ..
I am a basic rate tax payer .. no buisnesses or income from any other source.
do I have to pay tax on my proceeds

Thank you for your question..

In order to advise you on likely CGT liability, I need to know

- the likely gain on the property in question

- how long did you live in the property as your main residence ( you say you moved out in Aug 2013)

- when did you buy the property

You do not pay CGT on the proceeds but on the gain made from sale of property.

Many thanks
