Your story concerning my expense claims is wrong. I did not move the designation of my main home to sell a property in London.
In 2004-5 I was living in London in a house, paying a mortgage. I spent more time there. I rightly claimed on the constituency home as the second home, and the taxpayer’s interest was served by doing so as it was cheaper.
When I sold the London property I paid capital gains tax on it to protect the taxpayers interest.
Since 2005 I have lived mainly in the constituency, and have made that my main home. I have extended and improved that property at my own expense. I have claimed first for a rented flat, and more recently for a bedsit which I purchased in Pimlico. I purchased as this will prove cheaper.
When surrendering the flat I received a repayment of the deposit minus the last rent and services payment which I returned to the Fees office. I explained to them what I was doing. I cannot see what the issue is here.
