    Are you talking about your own home or a rental business?

    If the former = No, if the latter = Yes. Those items can be tax deductible.

        • Buying BTL and declaration of trust?
          bhodgkiss
          Hi there

          I'm buying a btl with my partner (not married)

          i believe we can do the mortgage under tenants in common (as opposed to joint tenants), then sign a declaration of trust to adjust the income split 99:1 (instead of 50:50). She's doesn't work.

          Is it that simple...

          Many thanks

          So aside from ownership implications if we ever split up, surely HMRC will be happiest in assessing rental income if we have a tenants in common ownership 99:1?

          Then rental split follows ownership split?

          Also if we get married it'll need to swap to...

          Which is why joint tenants is the better route.
          There's no defined split in ownership.

          How the business then arranges its affairs is then, more or less, up to the business.

          As you are not married, HMRC will look for the real beneficial ownership of the property. The factors such as who put down the deposit, who receives and spends rent, etc will become important. So, if your partner owns 99% of the house, then there would not be any issue from HMRC. But, this means she...

          That's necessary for married couples.

          As unmarried partners you can purchase as joint tenants (which is probably better for you in some other ways) and decide how you split the income.
          You should probably document the income split and both sign it.

          You need to have some written agreement to confirm that ( 1) you are part owner in the property and (2 ) you and daughter have agreed to share the rental income after deducting allowable expenses in the ratio agreed.

          This document is signed by both mother and daughter., and copy supplied...

        • Income Tax clams for refubishing rented property.
          bonon
          On my self assessment income tax form can I claim back monies spent in refurbishing the property back to a decent standard after tenants moved out leaving it in not a good condition. Also can I claim other expenditure on travel and accommodation in so far as the said property is 240 miles away from...

          To spread the costs over more than one tax year, you need to carry forward your loss in the first year.

          If that makes sense, no issue, otherwise see a local accountant (who's fees are also allowable against tax).
