    Buy to let mortgage arrangement fee

    Can the arrangement fee for a mortgage renewal be classed as an expense on a self-assessment tax return? If so can you please advise which section to put the costs under?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Mortgage arrangement fee is a finance cost which is no longer allowable against rental income. It can be reported in box 44 if you are submitting SA105 tax return.

    See advice notes for box 26 in



      Or perhaps here:



        Thanks very much

          I'd suggest that based on that description, all of the work was probably capital.

          I purchased a shell of a house that was structurally sound but needed complete refurbishment. The house had been ransacked many items. eg All the radiators & copper pipe had been ripped from the walls.
          A builder completed all the work from start to finish. The final cost was an all-in job...

          I believe your solicitor has to prepare a Deed of Trust which transfers 60 % interest in the property from wife to you.

          You need to make clear to your solicitor that Deed is for HMRC only and not for registration at Land Registry

          After signing the Deed , you...

          Hello. Since 2013 my wife and I own a property as tenants in common where the beneficial interest split is 90% her and 10% me. We are now looking to sell the property. I have a large CGT loss and using the HMRC CGT calculator I have calculated that if I change the split to 70% me and 30% my wife...

          The existing declaration states 10:90 beneficial interest not legal interest

          The Declaration changing the beneficial interest to 70:30 is prepared only for showing to the Tax Office .

          The existing registration of 10% :90% legal interest at Land Registry does not change and the Mortgage Lender has already accepted this situation. .

          Hi. My solicitor has told me the declaration needs to be registered with the land registry otherwise there will be no effect of creating the declaration. Is this correct?

          I have also spoken to my lenders and they have mentioned they will want a new copy of the title. I mentioned to them...
