Legal fees re leases - tax deductibility

Tax deductibility of legal costs re leases

I recall that a landlord's legal fees for the initial setting up of a lease are not income tax deductible (unless the lease is for less than a year).  If the property is subsequently sold - my query is whether such costs - which were disallowed for income tax - are deductible in calculating a taxable capital gain?
