    Will i be penalized

    This is my second year of renting letting my house which i used to live in. I did not declare anything for first year as i was not sure if renting was something i would continue after initial 6 months. If i start declaring now will i be penalised for not paying the previous undeclared year? Any help with this really appreciated.

    Go and see an accountant and explain. I believe you can send in an amendment to last years tax return up to a year later. An accountant may even spot some deductions you didn't know about, and get you a tax refund!

    How great would that be?

      What date did you start renting it out?

          Yes, you should declare previous year.

              Hi Andrew
              First of all I've got an initial appointment to speak to an accountant on Friday!

              Can I just check where you write ' ...at death 1/6th of the value of the whole would have been deemed to pass to you for CGT purposes as the survivors would share the whole'.

              Does...

              Even if probate wasn't mandatory, it would probably have been useful.

              I appreciate 'ignorance' is no excuse, however there are some mitigating factors, i.e. due to illness etc.

              1. Previous family home rented out - terrible tenants - left owing rent, bad repairs etc. [usual story for some] subsequently property not let for 2 years for a number of reasons while...

              Yes this would be the case if it was jointly owned (not as tenants in common). The situation would be that at death 1/6th of the value of the whole would have been deemed to pass to you (for CGT purposes), as the survivors would share the whole.

              So for the 3 periods you would be taken...

              There was no estate as such, property jointly owned - they were both retired at time of purchase living on small pensions, hence I bought with them so they could stay in the home they'd been renting from council from early 1950s to March 1982 at time of purchase. And I paid for the initial...

              I don't know the historic thresholds, but it's bizarre that there's no probate for both of your parents, their estate has to be tiny for that to be possible nowadays.
              It's probably too late for HMRC to do anything about that, but that process sets the values for CGT calculations later on, so it's...

              Morning Andrew
              Thanks for your response early this morning and clarifying I have to make three separate calculations [the split wasn't clear on the CGT calculator].
              I understand the query on the value but this is an ex council house on a council estate [I feel I have to defend it here as...

              As gordon indicates you need to consider it in three entirely separate parts, each have their own gain and calculation --

              The part YOU owned before Death 1
              The part YOU owned between Death 1 and Death 2
              The part you owned after Death 2

              Based on the values you give...

              Thank you Gordon, didn't see your response this afternoon. I will look at this with fresh eyes tomorrow as it's late now.
              I've put some figures in my reply to a post just now but answers below to your questions.

              a] £80k Jan 2021 sale price.
              b] As property purchased before...

              Andrew, apologies only just seen your post [was it awaiting approval did you say?] answers are:

              Purchased March 1982 as joint tenancy - so equal split of 33 1/3% each party
              Parent 2 died September 2007 - as joint tenancy I inherited their share - so at this point I own 100% of property...
