Am wondering if you can avoid depreciation recapture if: You have a large old home, make an apartment or two out of part of the home, live in the rest of the home. Then you do not take any depreciation after 1997--does the "allowed or allowable" rule force you to recapture when you "undo" the rentals for two years, living in the whole house, 'til sale. (Hope that question makes sense!) Thanks.
