    Default New rental - how to treat carpet cleaning and roof repairs for tax purposes?

    Hello All,

    I have recently started renting my house out (using an agent, as I'll be overseas).

    Two statements, with a question regarding both of them following:

    1. I had the carpets professionally cleaned the day before the tenancy started.
    2. A section of the roof needs some work done to make sure it stays watertight. This work will take place (shortly) after the tenancy has started.

    Question: Are either of these tax deductible as far as the tenancy is concerned.

    Any input gratefully received.

    Thanks ... Big Wal

    My opinion.

    Yes - both. (The gross amount you pay in each case.)
    With all the Draconian new laws for residential rental LLs, perhaps AirBnB would be better? To avoid any hassle in Hawke's Bay, consult Be My Hostess. Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!
