My husband and I bought our UK house in Buckinghamshire in October 1999. This has been our one and only residence. We have just completed a sale on that house (12/08/2003) and we would like to use the profits of that sale to buy a house in South Africa. We will be leaving the UK permanently on 27/09/2003 to go and live in South Africa. Are we liable for any Capital Gains Tax on the profit of the sale of our UK house?

You have no UK liability on the sale. (100% PPR Relief).
