    Claiming Interest on SA

    Hiya,

    I currently have a BTL on which I have no mortgage.
    I want to re-mortgage this property (Interest Only) and buy another BTL. I will also be taking out another BTL mortgage on the new property.
    My query is, on my SA can I claim back the Interest for both properties against my rental income?
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    What is the purpose of the 2nd BTL mortgage?

      if both properties have btl mortgages and are rented out, then yes. if this is a scam to rent one and live in the other then no!

        Hi,

        Thanks for your reply. Just for clarification. I am trying to release capital in my first BTL (which is fully paid up) and use the money as a deposit to buy a second BTL.
        If I give you some example figures:
        1. First BTL - on this I take out a BTL mortgage for say £50,000 to release capital.
        2. I use the £50,000 as a deposit on a second BTL taking out another BTL mortgage on this second property for the balance.
        I know have two BTL mortgages, on the first and second properties.
        Both will remain as rental properties.

          Both should be allowable.

          There is a limit to the mortgage interest that can be claimed on the existing property, which is limited to a mortgage on the original value when brought in to the business.
          If it cost £100k a few years ago and you mortgage it at £150k, only the first 2/3rds of the interest is allowable.
          When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
          Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

            Both should be deductible from the rental income.

              I suspect that you completed the return incorrectly.

              Hi, new here, sorry if this has been asked already but I can't find the answer.

              I have just completed my tax return for 2020/21 as a landlord with a few properties. My income was 22k and my outgoings (maintainance, ground rent, insurance, mortgage payments etc) was 18k. The mortgages are...

              Yes (if you are spouses)
              Probably wise to use a lawyer

              If it was first let in December 2020, the costs allowable against income prior to that take place on the first day of the first tenancy for tax purposes.

              So, if you mean can you claim it on a tax return for April 2020 to April 2021, the answer is yes.
              You can't claim it for this tax...

              I started my limited company a year before buying the first property, then bought a second 2 months later, a third 3 months after that, a fourth 5 months after that and so on to where I am now. Our lenders have never said they want a separate company per property. Ive never heard of that, if it were...

              I don't think we disagree.

              The OP has one property and is looking to buy a second.
              At that point in that business, lenders will want a company per property.

              There's a point where that ceases to be the case, when the portfolio gets big enough, or, presumably when someone...

              i concur with James, once you get over 4 properties, they consider you to be a portfolio landlord and want to start seeing cashflow forecasts before lending to make sure the company is buoyant. Directors guarantees each time but no limits on number of properties or number of dofferent lenders.
