regarding property 1, over the total rental period its a net loss of £500.00. How does this impact LR.
please answer my follow on question
Firstly my apologies for the delay. I am answering your question from a time zone 7 hpurs ahead of GMT and I had gone to bed!
I assume from your query over the loss that LR has extinguised the gain and left GBP 500 unused. Thst is actually not the case and LR would be utilised only so much as to reduce the gain to zero. The rest of that relief is lost.
ok thanks, understood.
we can close this case.
