    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

              Considering selling our rental property and trying to estimate how much CGT is due. We are both basic rate tax payers and the gain from the property will take us into higher rate, so the amount of tax we pay will depend on income for that year – it does vary year to year. I presume the relevant income...

              Yes

              You do, or better an accountant but essentially you report and pay the gain at HMRC https://www.gov.uk/report-and-pay-yo...r-6-april-2020 estimating what you need to, and then report it again essentially in your tax return...

              You estimate your income for this year and declare and pay the tax accordingly.

              Hello again.

              Just wondering if someone can advise.

              If I sell a BTL to my children who do not own their own property, I understand that they'll get the stamp duty relief.... two questions then.

              If they're buying the £350,000 jointly, does the relief count for...

              If the buyers are going to rent the property while they go to university, it may meet the criteria for Stamp Duty Relief but it may not.
              It would be unusual for siblings leaving university to be able to commit to cohabit in a particular place when they graduate.

              There's obviously...

              Apart from anything else, if you are selling the property to the kids, you are getting cash and they have a 100% mortgage - and then they are not actually paying a mortgage on 100% of 350K you will be paying it -- it is not a classic GROB, but risks falling foul of GROB rules - so when you die, even...

              Thanks.

              Yes, the lender is happy to lend them 100% the purchase price so not gifting on our side. In essence, it's just removing it from our name into theirs as he is also our lender.

              It's unusual I appreciate but it's a private commercial lender - if that makes sense. His...
