Laniora Lay has raised the following Landlords CGT Question:-
“I have been renting out my former family home for the last three and a half years. Meanwhile I myself have been living in rented accommodation.
I now wish to move back in to my former home and would like to know how long I need to live there before I can sell it and avoid having to pay CGT.
Please can you help with this matter as I have been told it’s 3 months, 6 months, a year or 5 years !!!
