I sold a rental property last Oct so need to work out he capital gains for the tax return. Situation is as follows: - Property Purchased Oct 2001 - Moved in Jan 2002 - Did extensive renovations during 2002 - Moved out Jan 2003 and rented out - Sold Oct 2007. Now I assume I need to determine the value of the property in Jan 2002 when first rented for capital gains purposes. I was planning on using comparable sales to help me do. My question is can add in any of the costs of purchase e.g. stamp duty etc in the capital gains calcis to help reduce the gains ? I am assuming that I can't as I lived in it for 1 year and it was my PPR. However, I am hoping that I can !! Does anyone know ? Thanks.
