Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Your gain is 325K - 85K = 240K. Your total ownership time is say 50 years. Your letting time is 8.25 years as for the last 9 months of ownership you are deemed to be in residence even if this is not the case. Thus 8.25 / 50 = say so 16.5% of the gain is exposed to CGT. 16.5% of 240K is 39.6K Now knock off your non cumulative Annual Exempt Amount (AEA) of 12.3K leaves leaves 27.3K exposed to CGT at 18% or 28% or a combination of the two rates depending on your total income including the gain in the tax year of disposal. A worst case scenario would be a tax bill of a tad under 8K.
Then you will be liable for the full gain 240K, but at 10% or 20%. Worst case scenario wold be a tax bill of say 46K
