    10% Allowance includes Kitchen Appliances?

    I have two furnished flats and ten unfurnished ones. I claim the 10% wear & tear allowance on the two furnished ones.

    I would like to replace the washer dryer in one of the furnished flats. Can I claim any extra for this in view of it being machinery and not furniture?

    It is not an allowance for 'furniture' only. Fixtures and fittings is perhaps a better term.

    If you are claiming the 10% W&T then you have already been receiving relief for this kind of expense. In short, you would not be able to claim anything further.

        Therefore, throw away the old washer drier that is in the furnished flat.

        (Assuming it has one) then take a washer drier out of an unfurnished flat, and bring in deemed proceeds of market value - which being second hand will be considerably lower than cost price. Look on ebay for some comparative numbers. Then put the second hand WD into the furnished flat. And buy a new one for the unfurnished flat.

          Thanks Telometer,

          That's a brilliant idea, (and I did think about doing something like that. )

          The problem is I don't have a van or muscles like Geoff Capes, to start shifting machines around. I always get the shop to deliver and install the new machine, and take away the old one.

            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...

            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...

            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...

            I wasn't aware that refurbishment deductions only applied in terms of letting out the property. On the CGT calculator it asked 'How much have you spent on improvements since you became the property owner'.....

            Here's the timeline:

            March 1982 - 1992 3 Owners,...

            JP Keates et al - thank you very much for your assistance. I have this afternoon emailed an accountant to try and get an appointment urgently. I hadn't realised it was all so complicated and it was remiss of me to not be aware of the CGT changes made in 2020 due to not renting out the property. Thanks...

            Refurbishment while you were living there is only allowable against CGT if it was solely and exclusively for the business, so if it was to prepare the property to be let, it would be OK.
            If it was simply to improve what was then your home, it fails the basic test.

            Get yourself to...

            The probate resets a lot of the stuff, but my main response was unapproved

            You are really short on detail:

            Date (year & month) bought in joint names ______ (what % was yours then)
            Date it converted to your sole name ______ (presumable date of death of parent 2?)
            Declared vale at probate _________
            Capital expenses between date of probate 2...

            We were all joint owners. Bought it with parents. I lived there for 10 years before buying own home. I became sole owner upon their deaths. Rented out since 2007-2019. Empty last two year as trying to sell. Hence I was off the landlord radar. I am now extremely worried by your statement that refurbishment...

            Let us know the exact timescale and money involved year by year - I am sure some kind person (or even myself) with do a calculation for you so that you can assess the risks involved
