This week's PRR conundrum put to me by one of my clients...
Two concurrent residences - one in the City (weekday residence when working), the other in Devon (weekend with family). The residence in the City has always been the 'nominated' residence. Since lockdown, homeworking and travel restrictions has meant full-time in Devon and has not been to the City residence for 6 months.
It is well known that actual occupation is required for a PRR nomination elections (except in cases of deemed residence). Deemed residence does not apply here, so we must look at actual residence. There is no longer actual residence in London (although no doubt there will be when the world returns to normal). Does this, therefore, invalidate the nominated residence election wef the date that there was a 'change in the combination of residences', such that the Devon home now de facto becomes the only actual residence?
