A husband owns a flat (mortgaged). He is selling it after marrying earlier in the year. Some capital gains tax will be payable as he no longer lives there - the couple moved into a larger place together some years before getting married.
Can the couple use both spouses' capital gains tax allowances? Thank you.
Edit: As it is quite a small flat, there may be little need for the extra allowance, as it appears that because the husband used to live in the flat, until the government budget changes take effect in 2020, he will also be able to claim Letting Relief.
