Tax relief on loan when buying off-plan

If I have an existing rental business and I purchased a property off plan to add to my portfolio, with exchange in year 1 and completion in year 4. off plan

Can I claim interest on a loan to fund the deposit paid in year 1? If so, do I claim in year 1 (after exchange) or not until completion in year 4 when the property is first let?

Many thanks

Latic

Hi Latic,

How did you borrow the money? Was it from your existing portfolio?

Thanks for your reply. It was from an unsecured loan.
