    Expenses what would start date be?

    We moved out of the property at the end of Jan. Did some DIY stuff, tradesmen stuff and spoke to various agents. Finally got property online with agent mid March. End of August property rented out.

    So we understand Council Tax and utilities can be claimed as expenses. But when would we start this on tax return? End of Jan or mid March? We guess mid March as we have an agency receipt as proof.

    Doing DIY stuff since you moved out probably OK.

    Maybe the Council Tax from when it was actually available to let.

    8 months is a rather long time, even under the current circumstances

      You are responsible for paying CT from Feb going forward so would claim all tax paid,unitl let when tenant pays.

        The property was (arguably) part of the rental business from when you moved out.
        You could therefore claim for the bills as expenses, which are treated as having being incurred on the first day of the first tenancy.
        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).
