If you own a residential property which you have ever lived in and ever let out a significant tax relief ends on 5 April 2020.
If you sell the property before 5 April 2020 you could benefit from letting relief which can save up to £11,200 if you are the sole property owner. For two joint owners the saving can be £22,400 between them. This relief ends on 5 April 2020.
Furthermore, if you no longer live in the property, the period of “deemed occupation” (which reduces any tax charge) is reducing from 18 months to 9 months also from 5 April 2020.
To benefit from both of these tax advantages you must have exchanged contracts by 5 April 2020.
