Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

Hi all, I’m considering selling my main residence and moving into a rental property I own. Given I will be selling my main residence, if I buy another within 3 years, will I be able to claim the stamp duty refund? Or will it not apply because I’ll be moving into the rental property I own in the interim and therefore that would be deemed my main residence so unless I sold the rental property, I would post second home stamp duty?
Additionally, Is anybody aware of the qualifying period I could live in the rental property for without then having to pay any capital gains tax if I did sell the rental after living in it for a while?
Someone said if I move in for 6 months then any historic capital gains tax requirements disappear?
