We decided to have several agents around to get an idea of price. Kerb Appealz just stood out and our family wanted to use them. We are so glad we did! They initially priced our home at £400,000, they in fact achieved £425,000 from a cash buyer. This all happened six hours after listing – he lived in Singapore and made an offer from the the 3D tour, then got his parents to see it on his behalf…..all we can say is a huge thank you...

Frequently Asked Questions
* When is the best time to sell my holiday home?

We would generally say the best thing to do is sell it while you are still renting it out. There will be a lot of buyers seasonally around. People book to stay in holiday homes because they love to do it and if they love your area, the chances are they may be a potential buyer for yours.

Our advice would be to rent it out up to the start of the holiday season and sell within that period.

* What will be the tax implications if I sell my holiday home?

Buying a second home has plenty of advantages. It could enhance your lifestyle, generate valuable income and increase your capital. However, the property can see you incurring significant expenses, including maintenance costs, council tax bills, and insurance. You should also be aware of the tax implications, as you could be in for a hefty bill when you sell.

Having recently introduced the stamp duty surcharge on second homes, the government is also planning changes to capital gains tax. These will come into force in 2020. It is important to understand your capital gains tax liabilities and how the proposed changes to the law could affect you.

Capital gains tax

You may have to pay capital gains tax if you make a profit (gain) when you sell a property, which is not your main home. Your gain is the difference between what you paid for the property and the amount you later sell it for. You are permitted to deduct certain expenses from your gain to reduce your tax liability. These include estate agent’s fees, solicitor’s fees and the cost of any improvement work. You cannot deduct the costs of decorating or maintaining the property.

You are also entitled to Private Residence Relief for any time you spent living in the property as well as for the last 18 months you owned the home - even if you weren’t living there at the time. Read more about this relief on the gov.uk website.

If you are a property developer, rather than a home owner, you do not pay capital gains tax. Instead you pay income tax on your profits, if you are a sole trader. If your business is a limited company, you pay corporation tax.

You may receive tax relief if the property has been occupied by a dependent relative or if it is a business asset. These rules will be changing in April 2020 as mentioned in the Chancellor’s autumn budget statement in November 2018.

For capital gains tax purposes, second homes include buy-to-let properties, holiday homes, land and inherited properties.
