Hello Peter, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
In my opinion these are not chargeable against rental income. They do, however, increase the acquisition value of the buy to let property for capital gains tax (CGT) purposes to reduce the gain on ultimate sale. You could always try offsetting rental income, HMRC might wear it.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Thank you for your support, Peter.
