Principal Private Residence Relief and Lettings Relief changes due in April 2020


The start of the next tax year in April 2020 will see key changes come into effect in respect of Principal Private Residence Relief (PPR) and Lettings Relief, both of which can be used to soften the impact of Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on property disposals.

From next April, Lettings Relief will be restricted to property owners who share occupancy of a property with their tenant. At the moment, people who let a property that either is currently or used to be their main residence and who sell it can claim relief of up to £40,000, with double that being available to a married or civil partnered couple.

At the same time, the Final Period Exemption (FPE), which means that people do not need to pay CGT on the gains made in the final 18 months that they owned the property, will be cut to just nine months.

There are special rules available that do not affect people moving to care homes and people with a disability that are not affected by the changes.
