  • Damaged artwork expense
    by jtufty
    Hi all

    Silly minor question really. Last week the tenant accidentally knocked a framed picture off the wall and smashed it. It was only a cheap thing (I guess value was £10). I went out and bought a replacement picture for her. (I know I didnt have to, but shes a good tenant). I bought...

    As per above, as the place is "part-furnished", which will not incude pictures on walls.

    It's a gift to a stranger. ( They are not family, not close friends - etc. ) and not a claimable expence in any way..

    I'd see this as an altruistic gift to your tenant and leave it at that.

    My previous LL (although he had his faults) used to buy the 3 of us in his small HMO a £20 case of beer each at Christmas, I doubt he tried to claim it off tax.

    Its let "part-furnished". (she didnt have a bed, so I put a bed in there, and the white goods, and the [now-broken] picture and a few other bits n bobs)...

    You don't need to write anything. Retain the receipt and just include the appropriate amount in youR expenses/capital totals...

    We assume the place is let as furnished ?

    I don't think pictures are classed as furniture / but then again, a mirror screwed to the wall - if broken by the tenant, then the tenant pays.
    So pictures ? not sure.
    I would charge the tenant the cost of replacement.

    Thanks guys. I dont know what came over me! A momentary wave of altruism. Most unlike me!

    I have the receipt. What should I log it as? Should I literally just write "capital expense" or should I be more specific such as "replacement of broken picture"?

    It's a replacement item of furniture and its allowable as such.
    There's an inevitable element of betterment when you replace one thing with another.

    And £40 is neither here nor there as a capital item.

    That sounds definitely like an improvement as you didn't have to splash out £50 you crazy dude.
    £10 down to repairs and £40 capital expense I reckon.

    No Neelix, I don't approve of tax evasion.

    As it happens, I am the friend who has convinced the lady that it was best all round if she made a clean breast of it and fessed up as soon as possible via the Let Property Campaign and am using such talants as I posess to help her to do so....
