We bought a newly built house in 2013. Spent good amount of money on floring (so spent on acquiring). Lived there for 5 years. Then rented for approximately 3 years before sale. Can I claim CGT relief on money spent on flooring. Intention was never to rent the house but it didn't sell in 2018 despite being on market. Sold recently.
Most of the other cases/examples I see on internet are of cases when flooring was done while property was on rent or propert was bought to let from the beginning.
Our flooring expenses were to acquire an inhabitable property. That is the way I see anyway.
Can anyone please advice on how HMRC interpret these?
