    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.
