Thanks for you response.

The mortgage is with a bank. She could no longer afford the property after my Grandfather passed and I stepped up to support her. She is now moving to a senior citizen home.

Can I maybe claim her as a Dependent and have the home treated as primary residence for a Dependent?

If I must treat this a capital gains, is the tax implication similar to capital gains on stock?

Thanks.
