    Main home mortgage interest deducible against commercial investment income?

    Hi all,
    If I own my main residence outright and obtain a mortgage on it to finance a commercial investment property is the mortgage interest an allowable cost against the commercial rental income?

    Thanks

    If the draw down of the mortgage loan is on the same date as the purchase date of the commercial property, the mortgage interest should be allowed as expenses against rental income.. But you should check with your accountant before you proceed.

    • Is changing carpets to laminate flooring tax deductible?

      Hello,

      Carpets in a let property has worn out and I am considering to replace it with laminate flooring.
      Could anyone advise if this will be tax deductible (assume this won't be considered as improvement)?


      Thank you....

      I find that using expensive and long lasting underlay under cheaper carpet works best.
      It feels nice and luxurious and insulates well, and replacing the carpet is less traumatic on the bank balance.

      My son and I are thinking of buying a property together and renovating it. We were intending to rent it out but now are thinking about just selling it again once work is finished. If we purchase property in three names (our’s and his partner’s), we would get three capital gains allowances is that...

      It's not strictly true that a company must be used where there are more than four owners. Where there are more than four parties with an interest in a property, the first named four are treated as holding the land on Trust for the remaining beneficial owners; good documentation is essential to avoid...

      Yeah I prefer carpet too, but the rate at which tenants seem to be able to destroy carpet compared to laminate.....

      Funny how fashions change. Fifty years ago having fitted carpet had a social cachet, now everyone wants laminate flooring. I know it looks nice, but so do carperts. It is fine in a conservatory with cane furniture, but it makes a lounge look clinical. It also increases your central heating costs.

      Land Registry only allows 4 names maximum on the property title.

      If more than 4 names , you would need to register under company name and the members in the group become shareholders.

      The members can be shareholders with one £1 share each and the company borrows the funds...

      If the property title was a joint tenancy, anyone not contributing to the purchase would have received the ownership as a gift and would be an owner as a matter of fact.

      OK, that makes a lot more sense.

      The HMRC guidance is focussed on improvements like new rooms or new bathrooms rather than more mundane changes.

      I would probably focus equally on the amount of the difference rather than the ratio - £500 is neither here nor there for tax purposes,...
