I am an accidental landlord who is looking to sell my (personal) buy to let later this year. I would like to know if the estate agent and legal fees for the sale are tax deductible or not. On the HMRC website they say:
"You can't claim any expense that was not incurred solely for your rental property business".
But I am not sure whether a sale would fall into this category or not and I can't find any other information online re this scenario.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
