Rental property becoming FHL for CGT relief

Didn't find your answer?

If a property that has been let out for long term lets, is then used as a Furnished Holiday Let, is there a length of time it needs to qualify as a FHL in order to benefit from the CGT reliefs? Or is it the case that once it qualifies as a FHL, it's history doesn't matter and it can be treated as a business asset for CGT? I'm aware the individual CGT reliefs have their own time restrictions to be eligible.

What I'm wondering is, can someone turn their normal rental property into a FHL for a time in order to be classed as a business asset for CGT?
