    I wasn't aware that refurbishment deductions only applied in terms of letting out the property. On the CGT calculator it asked 'How much have you spent on improvements since you became the property owner'.....

    Here's the timeline:

    March 1982 - 1992 3 Owners,...

    JP Keates et al - thank you very much for your assistance. I have this afternoon emailed an accountant to try and get an appointment urgently. I hadn't realised it was all so complicated and it was remiss of me to not be aware of the CGT changes made in 2020 due to not renting out the property. Thanks...

    Refurbishment while you were living there is only allowable against CGT if it was solely and exclusively for the business, so if it was to prepare the property to be let, it would be OK.
    If it was simply to improve what was then your home, it fails the basic test.

    Get yourself to...

    by reluctantlandlord1976
    I appreciate 'ignorance' is no excuse, however there are some mitigating factors, i.e. due to illness etc.

    1. Previous family home rented out - terrible tenants - left owing rent, bad repairs etc. [usual story for some] subsequently property not let for 2 years for a number of reasons while...

    The probate resets a lot of the stuff, but my main response was unapproved

    You are really short on detail:

    Date (year & month) bought in joint names ______ (what % was yours then)
    Date it converted to your sole name ______ (presumable date of death of parent 2?)
    Declared vale at probate _________
    Capital expenses between date of probate 2...

    We were all joint owners. Bought it with parents. I lived there for 10 years before buying own home. I became sole owner upon their deaths. Rented out since 2007-2019. Empty last two year as trying to sell. Hence I was off the landlord radar. I am now extremely worried by your statement that refurbishment...

    Let us know the exact timescale and money involved year by year - I am sure some kind person (or even myself) with do a calculation for you so that you can assess the risks involved

    When you lived there did you OWN it (ot did your parents own it). Ownership by your parents and residence by them is irrelevant to your CGT calculation. Sounds as if it was rented out all the time that you owned it.

    Highly unlikely that over that timescale the CGT would be negligible "up...

    It seems to me your capital gains tax problem is rather complex and requires some help from a tax accountant. But before contacting the tax accountant , you need to collect all of the information.
