I am to put it mildly confused.
If anyone can shed some light I would be grateful.
We bought a house in July, our primary residence, we don't own any other houses.
So I think if I remember from my mountains of reading correctly if and when we go to sell we won't pay any capital gains tax?
My main confusion is arising from getting quotes for essential works on the house - we need a new fosse which we've just got a quote for.
The thing is I was sure I read that legislation had changed and that all artisans had to have by law assurance decennale.
But just found out that the guy who gave us the quote doesn't.
He said it should be covered by our own house insurance. I have an appointment next week with our insurance company and thought I'd pop in and see the notaire also to find out but thought I'd pick a few brains before-hand.
Is this the case?
Would be good to know as I'm getting a builder in today to do quotes for various internal works (knocking out walls, putting in a window, plus some structure work on the barn and roof.
