    Thanks Claymore. I think I concur.

    I'd take the money out. £25k in the bank may cover your taxes but if you haven't got another lump sum easily accessible for emergency repairs or other unexpected but essential costs etc, you may find yourself juggling finances.

    If you haven't already got Premium Bonds, the maximum you can invest is £50K.

    If its cash available before paying next January's tax bill, buy £20K of premium bonds. There is a monthly draw and chance to win £25 or £1 Mil.

    Thanks. I wasn't asking for advice how to spend my money. I've got plenty of ideas for that.

    In that case you are clearly not boracic and it is doing sod all good in NS&I so I say take it out and have a cruise or give it to the kids or cancer research ¡¡

    Very little. It's now CPI+0.01%.

    started a topic Raid my savings?

    Raid my savings?

    One tenant moved out on Friday, another moves out on 31st, and a third moves out 30th June. A fourth tenant tells me they cannot pay rent in full. Also, this year I have to upgrade the electrics on a further 11 properties, maybe £1k per flat. I have another 11 properties let, to pay for these voids, and have already paid my July tax. I have about £25k in the bank. I can see myself having to pay about that much in tax next January, so have only rent from a dwindling stock of let properties to live on for the rest of the year.

    Recently an index linked National Savings investment matured, and I can take £20k, or reinvest it for another 5 years. Until recently, I was planning to reinvest, but in view of lack of cash, wonder if I should take the money out?

    Any thoughts?

    It's 3750 each, if the house is jointly owned.

    I've just read the gov.uk guidance, and I'd misread it before.

    right I'll ignore it....

    I'm just doing my wife and my self assessment.

    We own a property together in the a 90/10 % split.

    The first question online is whether my income from property is greater than £1000.

    No.

    I've itemized all costs and interest etc on a spreadsheet...

    “Accidental” meaning I didn’t buy the house intending on being a landlord, and on the receipts I kept them for a couple of years but for jobs like the houses being painted inside and out, landscaping plastering and the like I didn’t think of hanging onto receipts for that sort of thing, which...

    Just wondering if this is the case and can be claimed on self-assessment?

    Absolutely. All can be set against income as it is an allowable expense.

    Did you really pay out £40K in cash to tradesmen who gave no receipts ?

    If you just claim the costs for which you have receipts, the capital gain achieved during the rental period = 50% of the total capital gain. What does this figure come to ? .

    Accidentally signed an AST?

    No receipts so what would you do if you need to get supplier/contractor back due to bad work? Was this cash in claw?

    Surely at least bank statements or credit card records of expenditure? Can you get confirmation from suppliers? They must have ...
