Rental Income - repairs after ceasing to let out
Think I probably know the answer but you never know for sure.
Client let out a property until February 2011. Following a divorce she needed the property to live in so regained possession early March 2011.
The tenants had trashed the place so she has had substantial expense making it habitable again.
I can see there is expenditure on eg new fireplace etc which I would not consider claiming but what about some of the other restorative costs? e.g. replacing windows and kitchen. Redecorating etc? Carpets?
