  • offsetting early repayment charges against tax

    Hi,
    I'm new to the site so go easy on me !
    I am locked in to a high interest rate mortgage and want to pay back a chunk of it but will incur early repayment charges from the bank. Can I offset this charge against rental income in the same way as I could for the mortgage interest?
    Thanks
    Mark

        • Do I have to pay capitol gains tax?
          globularity
          I am currently living with my parents and have rented my flat out, this is the only property I own, and I lived there 12 years renting and 1 year as an owner. I am happy to move back in if this helps me to not have to pay capitol gains. Just read somewhere if its your principle home theres no capitol...

          When did you buy it, between what dates did you live in it, rent it out and when do you plan to sell it?

        • Buying BTL and declaration of trust?

          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, yes I had read the bit about if one of us dies etc.

          Ok we'll go for the standard joint tenancy, as I believe we can simply draw up a document for her to get 100% income anyway from what's been said here (and other threads)

          There are other differences between married couples and non-married couples that kick in.
          You need to look at the totality of the situation, not focus on one part of it.

          If you are married and one of you dies, the surviving spouse inherits the deceased's property automatically....

          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.
