    I'm retired, so lockdown essentially means that lots more people live the same life as I do.
    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).

      I'm a full time carer, so lockdown and never leaving the house, has made no difference to me.

        Wouldn't it be interesting if the posters on this forum got together in one room, no names. I wonder if we would be able to identify who's who just by talking?

          Lots on I got an email early Oct saying once you have completed your online tax return there is a "Time to pay " option which can be done online to spread the payments over a year

            Not fair, I'm a Brummie, you'd spot me in a second.

                D999,

                The taxman's method of calculating :

                Capital gain is the Sale Price ( say £200K ) minus Purchase Price ( say £130K ) = £70K capital gain.

                But buying and selling expenses are allowable and include the conveyancing cost : say £1K plus estate agent'...

                Evening all,

                I am currently looking to move house and also have a rental property that has around £200k equity in it.

                The rental house had consent to let and on a repayment mortgage and has 3 years to go until I can switch deals.

                I have spoken to a mortgage broker...

I spent nearly £30000. New kitchen and bathroom, re doing the garden, new flooring throughout ,total electrical re wire, re...

                Thank you for your kind words JP and the tips re using an accountant. Having been taxed at source all my working life this is very useful information. I will look round for an accountant. A friend of mine who is also a landlord as well as having a day job has one, so maybe a personal recommendation...

                Thank you for your work in the NHS!

                I've found that the first sessions were the most valuable in terms of what could be saved, and the value has diminished slightly and the costs of the returns being done has stayed the same/slightly increased, so it feels like it's less worth it.

                I been looking at spreadsheets to list my expenses and every template I find seems to allocate expenses per house ie 5 houses = 5 separate sheets whereas I just put everything down on one sheet.
                I would like to know if I have been doing it wrong all these years.
                ​​​​​​Any help...

                I use one page of a spreadsheet for all the income and expenses and have other pages which automatically summarise the data property by property.

                When you sell the property, you can't retain any of the equity, so that doesn't really make any sense to me.
                On disposal, the mortgage will end and have to be repaid.

                The value of the rental property when first let is also a limit to the amount of the loan against which interest can...

                Gordon999 thanks for your reply. In regards to CGT so if I was due to sell a house I could request to remove all the equity before the sale and wouldn’t be subject to CGT... that doesn’t seem right.

                In regards to switching my mortgage from repayment to and interest only... would I incur...

                Its good to keep a separate sheet for each property because when you come to sell one house , you may want to show the rental and expenses records for one house to prospective buyers.
