My property was sold under a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO). I was advised I could roll over the capital gains if I used the proceeds to buy another investment property. I have seen two accountants to try and find out if I need to inform the Inland revenue and if so how or I can just go ahead and use the proceed to acquire another property.
The property was bought under right buy scheme with value of £92k and after discount I paid £52k.in 2005. After purchase in 2005 I lived there with my family and moved out to live in another property in 2008. I rented the property. This year in August the compulsory purchase completed and I was paid £205000 as the value of the property and £15375 home loss payment. £14100 disturbance payment including stamp duty for replacing the peoperty plus solicitors and surveyor.s fees of £1020 and £3405 respectively.
What was I was not advised on is whether I need to inform the inland revenue and if so how.
Do I have to buy a property of the same value or can I buy of higher value mortgaging the the difference?
Is the home loss and disturbance payment part of capital gain calculation?
Thank you for any assistance.
