    Tenants in Common - Land Registry Question

    Hi All,

    Just purchased a BTL property with the wife.

    I wish to split rental income 80% wife, and 20% me for income tax purposes.

    When the Land Registry Transfer form was completed, it had 3 options:

    - they are to hold the property on trust for themselves as joint tenants (box 1)
    - they are to hold the property on trust for themselves as tenants in common in equal shares (box 2)
    - they are to hold the property on trust: (box 3)

    I believe it was originally signed as joint tenants, but if I wish to split the rental income as per the above split, then it should have been tenants in common. My solicitor said that he can submit a "correction" to Land Registry regarding this.

    I assume I tick box 3 with the addition of "for themselves as tenants in common in unequal shares with Mr X having 80% and Mrs Y having 20%" .

    On this forum and elsewhere on the internet, it says that split is defined on a separate Deed of Trust. Which means that if you wish to amend the % in the future, you just need to update the Deed of Trust and resubmit the Form 17 to HRMC.

    But how can the percentage be updated without updating land registry, when the TR1 mentions the split (if what I said above is correct)?

    Or should box 3 just says they are to hold the property on trust for themselves as tenants in common in unequal shares, and not actually specify the split? With the split being done on the Deed of Trust?

    Many Thanks
    Z

    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...

    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'...

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

    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...

    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.
