    fire doors upgrade requiremet

    due to himo rule change, i have at the local council requirement had to change all doors to fire doors.
    is this a capital expense or general maintance?

    I think it is a bit of a grey zone. What you cannot do is charge it to both. Grey zones you can (within limits) do what suits you, as long as it is consistent. Bear in mind it may not be a capital expense either in the long run if you take that route (for example if you ever replace the doors again before you sell it, or if you never sell it).

      I agree with MrDod.
      I'd have tended to them being maintenance, because the impact on the value of the building itself is minimal.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          There's a reason that the HMRC documents are guidance, not regulations.

            I don't think that many landlords will pay any more tax, it'll catch some, but I'd have thought for the majority of landlords it's tax neutral.
            A small number of landlords will pay slightly more tax isn't much of a headline, though.

            At the time as s24 has been introduced, the personal...

            I am wondering if S24 tax changes are going to come and haunt landlords.

            Under the tax changes landlords can't deduct interest payments in full. Individual Landlords have been paying more tax, then is fair.

            You could end up with a situation where the tenant wont or can't...

            Im sure the reservation relies on the person who made the gift.
            If we was to sell the property and take our 50/50 share of the sale price would that release the gift with reservation if we then went on to buy our own property

            5 years ago i gifted part of my property to my son as joint tenants. We lived in the property together. So its possibly a grob.

            Now we want to go our separate ways. Could he buy my share out so he owns the whole house. And i use the money to buy elsewhere. Could this introduce a IHT or...

            The reservation will depend (as far as I can see) on who pays the running costs of the property.
            If the running costs are split in line with the ownership, it's one thing, if the property is run as though it was the mother's house with her continuing to pay all the bills is another.

            Well if CGT was not payable on the first slice it won't be on the second.

            I don't see that you retained a benefit, but I can't find any case law to that effect. But if rent was payable it would have gone in both directions (you would have paid your son half the rent and he would have paid...

            Interesting that it may not be a grob as we own it all together. But surely hmrc will view it as i retained a benefit.

            Its our only main property i dnt think any cgt will be due. I was asking will cgt be due if i make another gift or sell my share to get my name of deeds?
            I ask because...

            Although they were BOTH living there and both owned it -- so the share gifted is probably not a GROB. It would be if only the OP was living there (owning only a portion) and not paying rent.

            It depends on the proportion - if the OP owned 1% and paid no rent - I think it would be in GROB...
