Tax relief for rental home improvements - Lords committee suggestion

Reply to the comment left by Laura Delow at 06/04/2019 - 07:54
Yes exactly, as I said works are already tax deductable wether it be yearly or against CGT when you sell it is still deductable, so not sure what the RLA is saying.

They do not understand that the more they take from landlords the less landlords there will be and so the more homeless there will be
P.S. not sure what you're saying about insurance, it can renew any time of the year just depends when you take it out.... Read More

No shower - It's a dirty job?

He sounds like a problem. He saw what was installed when he took the flat. If the pressure is so low that the shower doesn't work properly then he may have a point, but i suspect he will always be difficult.
What will be the next thing that doesn't suit him. Does he read a lot and want you to install more ceiling lights?... Read More
