I received an e-mail today regarding a webinar but I can never join these as they are always on while I'm at work but I did read about this forum so thought I'd ask here.
I currently rent out one property. Everything is going smoothly at the moment however I wondered in the case of improvements/repairs etc are any of the following allowable expenses?
1. The kerb at the front of the house is being dropped next month to allow the tenants to have some off road parking due to parking issues in the area. I will be paying a contractor to carry out the work and I have already paid the local council for a minor road works consent.
2. In the next 5-10 years we will probably have to replace the windows and have the house rough casted to keep it wind and water tight.
Obviously the kerb is going to be done soon so if that's an allowable expense, I can include that in my self assessment, however the 2nd point is just for reference for future as they will need to be done eventually.
