    Capital Gains Tax Private - Residence and Lettings Relief Question

    Hi all, can anyone help me understand the murky waters of the tax world?

    Our property where my wife and I used to live is now let out. We own no other property. When we lived in the house I was the sole owner. We then moved away for work (renting) and let out our home on an AST. Whilst our house was being let, half the house was then gifted to my wife on a 50/50 split.

    Would my wife be eligible for capital gains residence and lettings relief or would she be disqualified because (although she has lived in it) she technically did not live in it from when she owned part of it?

    If disqualified, how long would we have to now go and live in it to be eligible?

    Also would the private residence relief (if eligible) include the years when she lived in it prior to part ownership?

    Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.
