Landlord Tax

The 2015 summer budget reduced the amount of tax relief available for interest on buy-to-let mortgages from April 2017. With the financial parameters for buy-to-let landlords seemingly changing almost monthly, and with so much at stake for many landlords, it is vital to keep up to date with the latest legislation and tax laws, and to seek expert, professional advice.
Because of the fast-moving and complex nature of Landlord Tax, we at Oaktree have made Buy-to-Let Landlord Tax one of our specialist areas, so that we can advise and support landlords or prospective landlords on how to structure their tax affairs and their business so that they both remain compliant and minimise their tax burden.

Among the many issues you need to consider are:

  • Mortgage interest
  • Mortgage fees
  • Letting agent fees
  • Securing a tenant
  • Buildings and contents insurance
  • Maintenance and repairs
  • Furniture
  • Ground rent
  • Service charges
  • Council tax
  • Utility bills
