Buy to let, what can i claim against tax?
There are several allowable expenses that you can claim against tax when owning a buy to let property. These allowable expenses can include interest on your buy to let mortgage, council tax, property insurance, maintenance and property repairs, and legal and management fees
The 2015 Summer Budget has reduced the amount of tax relief that is available for interest on buy to let mortgages from April 2017.
Prior to April 2017, tax is payable on your net rental income after deducting allowable expenses including mortgage interest. This meant that landlords paying higher (40%) or additional (45%) rate tax could claim tax relief at their highest rate.
However, from April 2020 tax relief can only be reclaimed at the basic rate (20%), whatever rate of tax the landlord pays. The rules are being phased in over 4 years commencing April 2017.

I just wanted you to know that the experience with Charelston has been utterly professional and competent in every aspect of this transaction. The solicitor I instructed was not good at all and I would have walked away from this deal a long time ago had Andrew not consistently calmed me down and gone the extra mile to find solutions to any stumbling blocks that came up. I have been particularly impressed by his balance of never pestering but always remaining attentive and responsive when required. I was a director of a FTSE financial services firm for 12 year so know about the importance of customer service and the thing I notice most in the industry is how rare decent service actually is. Well done to you on employing, training and motivating staff of Andrew’s calibre, I would certainly use you again in the future.
