Hello and thank you for allowing me to assist you.
Did you have another residence when this was purchased?
A nomination must be made within two years from the date on which the combination of residences changes. In a simple case where a person acquires a second home, a property must be nominated as the main residence within two years of the date on which the second property is acquired.
In the event that a person has more than one home and has not made a nomination as to which one is the main residence for CGT purposes, the one that counts as the main residence will be determined as a matter of fact. This will often be the property where the individual spends most of his time
That would be hard to prove as you already said part time
You are most welcome
A 5 star positive rating would be appreciated
You would need to send a statement saying this was your main home
