    Loft insulation?

    Is loft insulation classed as a Tax expense.

    One of my houses is empty and there is very little insulation in the loft.

    Seems like the perfect time to put some in as its so cheap at the moment.

    yes, in a word. You can claim Landlord's energy saving allowance. Up to £1500 in energy saving measures are allowable in full against rental income for upgrading insulating efficiency. Loft insulation qualifies

        Surely an invoice would be more helpful...

          It's rather obvious that you have the invoices, of course you keep the invoices whether you have it done or do it your self but recording the evidence is so simple and clarifies any potential question from HMRC. Peter

            Elderly parents in early 80s, one in not so good health.

            Lived in the same home (no mortgage etc) for 50+ years - now worth approx £180,000 - £200,000 and they have minimal savings.

            Looking ahead, if one has to go into care (or council provided home care) I understand there...

            If they are left with a house bought 50 years ago and nothing else it certainly hasn't been a financially productive life has it? Either they have earned very little or spent quite a lot. Seems a bit odd to then think there would be anything left for the kids after either scenario....

            The house is being exchanged for the provision of care .Why should the family inherit the house, benefit from a windfall, and expect others to fund their parental care? The family could fund the care and then house could be inherited as and when the parents pass on.. There is also equity release as...

            I'm not even sure the £86000 lifetime limit has come into being yet. I also think the care home fees have to have the personal care cost element removed.

            Two points:

            1. Why should the tax payer pick up the bill for the parents care if they have assets? I really don't understand this point of view.

            2. I would rather pay for my care and get a choice than rely on the Council & get possible a worse standard of care.

            I'm not quite quite sure why you think they are being robbed? They have assets so can afford to pay for themselves. I would consider the council tax payers - many of whom can only dream of owning their own home - to have been robbed if they have to pay for it.
            Totally agree about those who could...
