PRR on jointly owned property -split occupation

Father & daughter have lived in flat as their indiv. sole residence at different times - PRR calc?

Didn't find your answer?

I've dealt with PRR on a number of occaisons but never in a situation quite like this. Father and daughter have owned a London flat jointly for 30 years. At different times they have each used it as their sole residence.

I thought at first, that I would split the gain, then apply their individual fractions of occupation (including the last 9 months for each of them) to their share of the gain to get their individual PRR.

But now I am 2nd guessing myself - should I add all the occupied time together, add the last 9 months (only once), and use this to get an overall PRR for the whole gain, before splitting the gain between them.

Gain is presumably the same for each, but relief will differ. Calculate each separately - they have separate occupation periods, so likely to have different amounts of PRR.

No, calculate the gains relating to their respective interests and then apply their respective PPR etc reliefs to their separate gains.

It's true that their base costs could be different, and separate calculations of the gains may be needed.
