Is Capital Gains Tax Due if...?

Question If a house is let out , the owner rents or stays elsewhere and then later sell their original house(to the tenant or somebody else) is capital gains tax due?

Arthur Says:
Most certainly capital gains tax (CGT) is due in this circumstance. If the owner originally lived in the house before letting it out, as their principal private residence, then certain reliefs can reduce the CGT involved. Similarly, if the owner had to live elsewhere in circumstances that were considered 'job related accomodation', then private residence relief may also be available to reduce the CGT involved.
