The HMRC have recently identified that over 50% of sellers liable for capital gains tax, do not pay because they do not know about it.
If Capital Gains Tax is not paid within 60 days of completion, there is a penalty payable.
When questioned the sellers advise that they were not aware of it during the home moving process.
The Conveyancing Association website now provides a link to the HMRC information so you can check and see if this is applicable
So If you dispose of UK residential property which is not your primary residence, you may have a capital gains tax liability.
