If you separated or divorced after 15 June 2000 and buy another house, you may qualify for first time buyers' relief. To qualify you must meet the following conditions:
  • you have left the shared home
  • you have not retained an interest in the shared home
  • your former partner continues to live in the house, which you shared before the separation or dissolution of your marriage.
