CGT question

hopefully a quickie.

due to postings away from our family home in lincs we have lived in married quarters for 5 yrs; our house has been rented out for that whole period. We are now selling and to our huge surprise it looks like we will make some profit on the house.

are we liable for CGT or are we treated as though we lived in that house all along because we were essentially forced to live elsewhere? it is our only property and we are liable for any CGT on anything else.

thanks very much for any help.
