Valuation fee on property re: Estate

Not deductible at all?

Didn't find your answer?


A property was owned 6 ways equally until one of the owners passed away. In obtaining valuations of the individual's Estate the Estate has incurred some professional costs. The deceased's share was distributed amongst the 5 surving owners.

 The other owners have included this professional fee in their yearly 20-21 rental expenses. This is clearly not an expense for income tax purposes, no disposal for CGT purposes has taken place and as I understand it fees incurred after death are not deductible for IHT.

Am I right in my thinking that this cost is not deductible for tax purposes. Just wanted to make sure I was missing something obvious.

Thanks in advance
