    Unfurnished properties with white goods - renewals

    Please can anyone help me with a question on white goods. A property was purchased for buy to let including white goods - The washing machine and tumble dryer were replaced whilst the property was tenanted. The property was rented out as being unfurnished.
    Should I have claimed for these new appliances as replacements or do I haveto wait until they are subsequently replaced?

    Any advices would be appreciated

    I believe that due to a rule change, you can only claim for them if the replacements were bought before 5th April 2013.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

      Thank you, I now remember spotting an article about the changes, but unfortunately forgot about it.

      I have just replaced a cooker in another property within the last month to make it more attractive to rent out.

      My concern was the fact that the white goods in this instance were purchased as part of the household inventory and as such I don't have individual receipts to prove this. Just the receipts for the renewals. Will this keep the tax man happy?

        Others may correct me, but I would have thought so.

          Considering selling our rental property and trying to estimate how much CGT is due. We are both basic rate tax payers and the gain from the property will take us into higher rate, so the amount of tax we pay will depend on income for that year – it does vary year to year. I presume the relevant income...

          Yes

          You do, or better an accountant but essentially you report and pay the gain at HMRC https://www.gov.uk/report-and-pay-yo...r-6-april-2020 estimating what you need to, and then report it again essentially in your tax return...

          You estimate your income for this year and declare and pay the tax accordingly.
          When you complete your tax return for the tax year, the figures are adjusted then....

          How old are these children if they have yet to go to university?...

          Hello again.

          Just wondering if someone can advise.

          If I sell a BTL to my children who do not own their own property, I understand that they'll get the stamp duty relief.... two questions then.

          If they're buying the £350,000 jointly, does the relief count for...

          If the buyers are going to rent the property while they go to university, it may meet the criteria for Stamp Duty Relief but it may not.
          It would be unusual for siblings leaving university to be able to commit to cohabit in a particular place when they graduate.

          There's obviously...

          Apart from anything else, if you are selling the property to the kids, you are getting cash and they have a 100% mortgage - and then they are not actually paying a mortgage on 100% of 350K you will be paying it -- it is not a classic GROB, but risks falling foul of GROB rules - so when you die, even...

          Thanks.

          Yes, the lender is happy to lend them 100% the purchase price so not gifting on our side. In essence, it's just removing it from our name into theirs as he is also our lender.

          It's unusual I appreciate but it's a private commercial lender - if that makes sense. His...
