    Mortgage tax relief

    If I purchase a property via a Residential mortgage on that property rather than BTL but do indeed let it out, am I still able to offset my rental income with the mortgage interest payments for tax relief?Thx.

    The proposed use of the property has to be declared to the provider. To raise a residential mortgage and then let the property with permission is a material change of fact and the provider can foreclose on you, charge you penalties and you loose your property. HMRC do not mind which it is, a residential mortgage attracts lower interest so more profit for you and more income tax to HMRC. Many property owners that rent out their ex home have permission form the provider to let the property and the residential mortgage remains in place. Lately they have not been as relaxed on this unless the rental is for a limited period due perhaps to the owner working away for a couple of years. Some owners retain the providers property insurance and it you let the property it is also not vlaid and a claim exposed this, so you could fine yourself with invalid insurance, and a foreclosure.

      The short answer is Yes, for HMRC purposes.

          Whether you have permission from the provider of the mortgage is irrelevant. Yes you can claim the interest as a financial expense no matter what kind of mortgage you have on the property you let out. I know from experience.

            I did not say it was not deductible. As far as HMRC are concerned you have lower interest mortgage so you deduct less and they tax your higher profit to fill their coffers. However a false declaration of obtaining finance or making material changes without the providers permission is a no, no, and can lead to prosecutuion and foreclosure of your loan and considerable closure penalties and loss of the property. I suggest you read my reply and link more carefully. Regards Peter

              Hello

              I am considering whether to sell my house which has been let for some time and need to see how I can best deal with CGT.

              I lived in the property from 1984 until 2006.

              From 2006 it has been occupied by tenants, now vacant and being renovated.

              You have owned the property for 38 years ( 1984 - 2022 ) and lived in the property for 22 Years ( 1984-2006 ) plus 16 years for letting..

              The total capital gain over 38 years is apportioned between "residence period" ( exempt for cgt ) and "letting period" ( liable...

              You should seek advice from an accountant, or a property tax for tailored advice to your specific circumstances, you may be entitled to some relief if the property at any time was your own principal residence.

              You declare (online) and pay CGT within 60 days of sale. Depending on the numbers I would expect you to pay CGT. What records do you have of applicable costs, etc?

              What you pay will depend on what CGT rules when you sell - v unlikely to be better than today, possibly worse. Covid,...

              The property allowance is a tax exemption of up to £1,000 a year for individuals with income from land or property.

              If you own a property jointly with others, you’re each eligible for the £1,000 allowance against your share of the gross rental income.

              If your annual gross...

              It's £1,000 each.

              Most landlords don't use this though, because it's rare for income from a rental property to be low enough to qualify,

              Can anyone help please, if a rental property is owned by two people 50 50. Would each owner be allowed to claim tax relief of £1000 each, or will the allowance of £1000 be split 50 50.
              Thanks

              Rent is income. All income needs to be declared, regardless of the mortgage you have
