    Wage

    Hi all. Sorry to ask, I rent out a few flats where I don't make a great deal of profit above paying my loans etc.. I was also employed up until last week when I was made redundant. My question is can I claim any weekly wages from the rentals now I'm unemployed? I haven't done in the past.

    Thanks all

    I don’t think property income is covered under the governments self employment announcement, if that’s what you mean?

      No mate I'm not trying to claim under the self employed thing. I mean I have no wages coming in now so can I withdraw money from my account and offset it against tax as wages

        What did you previously do with the income from the properties? If you're asking whether you can offset your weekly wages against the rental income for tax purposes, then I think the answer is no

          I have just been overpaying my loan with profits but never took a wage from it. I wasnt sure with me being unemployed I could take a wage as it is now my only job if you like

            Is your property held within a company structure or are they all held personally? If they are held in a company then you can just need to add yourself as an employee for the company (director) and pay yourself a wage. If you hold the property personally, then the profits you make is your salary, you just need to reduce over paying your mortgages.

              I think if you hold them personally it comes under unearned income rather than salary. You still get your tax free allowance though so will only pay tax on anything above it.

                Yes thanks all. They are personal so just my tax allowance then. I will reduce my overpayments. Thanks for your help it's appreciated.

                      The UC amount has just increased from I think £74. Think how people survived (or not) earlier.

                        I have a three bedroom property in the U.K which I will rent out .
                        I have had an enquiry from a couple and a friend
                        I do not intend to live at the property
                        Would it be possible just to rent two rooms to them , on the understanding they have full access to the property ?

                        That document is out of date and, in a lot of places, possibly as a consequence, now wrong or misleading.

                        The concept of individually negotiated clauses is now deprecated in consumer law.

                        I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

                        You can't have your cake and eat it Luke. If you want to receive rental income from a property that is not also your main home you have to accept that the occupants will be tenants. This means that you will have to comply with all your legal obligations as a landlord unless you want it to come back...

                        I wasn't sure if I was missing something in the model agreement that gave the requirement to leave the property reasonably clean regardless of the condition at the start of the tenancy - seems I wasn't.

                        I seem to recall the "professional" cleaning fee being an unfair clause although...

                        No reason the above should be the case in any sort of sane world - but courtesy of our ignorant and evil masters it is the case.

                        Obviously it depends on your properties but if they and your tenants are not particularly high maintenance there is no reason that you should have to reduce your employment hours to fit in managing 4 properties. I manage 9/10. I often allow it to take up more time than it needs to - it's true that if...

                        The government's model agreement doesn't contain such a provision.

                        "...the Tenant must return the Property and any items listed on the inventory to the Landlord in the same condition and state of cleanliness as they were at the start of the Tenancy."
