      If you could sell one flat every year you'd get every year's cgt allowance. Is that a possibility?
      To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

        If the properties haven't been let, this is probably going to be subject to income tax not CGT.

        When the property was split, your residence became the property you moved into, and the two new properties were created.
        The work done on those units was development, not investment.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

            Are you saying you bought the house 10 years ago and occupied whole house for 5 years as your main residence?

            Then 5 years ago, you converted the house to 3 studios units and lived in one studio for last 5 years and let out the other 2 studio units ?

                Assuming you have had the property for 5 years period , ans lived for 2 years in whole house followed by 3 years in one of the studios.

                The estimated capital gain if you sell for £110K less £30K purchase = £80K over 5 years .

                The capital gain for 2 years residence in whole house = £80K x 2/5 = £32K will be exempt for cgt

                For the remaining capital gain of £48K , you can claim 1/3 exemption for residence living in one of the studios . This leaves £32K which is taxable but you can claim £11K capital gains allowance . So you probably have about £21K capital gain to pay tax at 18% or 28%.
