    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.

            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...

            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...

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

            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...
