rental property and claim as PPR

I've two houses - both of which I rent out. I'm caring for my elderly parents, so live in their house with them.

But, in the times when my rental properties are empty, I go live there for say a month in-between tenants to decorate etc. I live there for that month or so.

So, do I need to make a "claim" to the HMRC for periods I live in the rental properties to keep my PPR allowance when I come to sell? Like do I need to build up a "dates rented dates lived in" list?

Or because i live in a property I don't own, can I allocate one of the rental properties as my PPR although it's rented out? Then switch each year or whatever?

If I need to make any claims, will a letter do, or should it be on a specific form?

Thanks.
Paul
