Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
You are disposing of your sole or main domestic residence and although a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability arises you are entitled to Private Residence Relief (PRR) which relieves CGT at 100%.
Yes, you will be liable to CGT on the gain made, but time proportioned to reflect the PRR entitlement from your occupation.
The gain will be calculated from the probate value and any improvements made is deductible from the gain less .of course, your non cumulative Annual Exempt Amount (AEA), currently 12.3K.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
