    CGT on a property i lived in for 6 years.

    I bought a property for £95,000 in 2001 and lived in the property for over 6 years. I then decided to keep/rent this property, re-mortgaging for a new property. I re-mortgaged the property for £175,000 as it was valued at 240,000.
    If i wanted to sell the property now - how much CGT would I have to pay?
    I still have £200,000 outstanding on my mortgage i live in.
    I have always done a self cert on the rented property paying my taxes etc! Any help please?

    What is the current market value of your rental property for sale now ?

    How is the 200000pds mortgage connected to the rental property or are you confused ?

      Value of property that you sell it for now minus £95,000 = profit on the house. You pay CGT on that.

        No The OP lived in the property for 6 yeras so PPR and Letting Relief will apply. Read HS283 on the HMRC web site. We await for the OP to tell us the est sale value. Regards Peter

          The current market value of the rental property is 235,000. The mortgage i have on the property I live in has no connection to the rental mortgage. Both are seperate.

            Sell today for 235k. Cost 95k. Profit £140k, earned over 11 years, i.e. 12.7k p.a. profit.

            First six years lived in; last three years deemed tax free. Total 9 years.

            Remaining 2 years taxable, i.e. 12.7 x 2 = 25.4k.

            Less letting relief (maximum 40k)

            Taxable gain nil. No tax to pay.

              Thank you, solicitors just confirmed its market value... damm. Never mind. Although I budgeted the SDLT anyway. Thank you again.

              Whichever you go with, make sure they both have adequate professional indemnity insurance in place.

              Evening all,

              We have recently submitted a planning application to convert a small commercial unit in a couple of new apartments. As I understand it the building work will be zero-rated for VAT as we are creating dwellings were none were previously.

              samsam
              I have one letting property. I have always used a short tax return which has been fine for giving totals of rent and costs inc mortgage interest. Now that the allowance for mortgage interest is reducing by 25% every year how do I show the figures? Whichever tax return I use, do I do the calculations...

              Sorry artful, I don't understand why you are asking me that. I haven't checked against Thersa's document (what is that?). I just want to know how I show the reduced mortgage interest claim against profit.
              Thanks

              When you checked against Theresa's document here, what did you conclude? What total profit & what total rental income please?

              If the property is registered under both names ( H & W) as " joint tenants" at Land Registry, both tenants have legal entitlement to the property. The Tax Office will assume the joint income is shared 50:50 and each person must declare 50% income in their tax return. The Tax Office...
