    Tax allowable expenses - what percentage please?

    Residential landlord with 3 lodgers.

    Read on the Inland Revenue site that I can claim " a proportion" of the utility bills, cleaning and maintenance of building, insurance, etc but despite searching all day I cannot find out WHAT proportion.

    Am hoping that, as landlord is only 25% of occupants, I can claim 75%. Is this correct?


    Brighton Belle.

    The proportion they reasonably are using:

    so if you are in all day, have 5 children & 6 dogs and the lodgers all work full-time 12hr shifts 7 days a week don't eat there only sleep it won't be 75%. But if you go out to work 12hr shifts and they stay in all day on JSA/ESA watching tele smoking dope in the garden shed, maybe....
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
