I bought a BTL property last June 2017 and first let it in Sep 2017. On an AST for 12 months.
The letting agent that found / vetted the tenant charge a letting fee of £360.
From what I have read online I am unsure if I can claim this as a management cost with it being associated with the first letting of the property ? Please could you confirm?
Also the mortgage I used to buy the property had a product fee of £995 which I added into the mortgage balance - I have read conflicting things online as to whether I can use this as tax deductible?
Thanks in advance
