Hello. All leaseholders in the block of flats in which I own and rent out a property, were required to contribute to roof repairs and water pipe replacements as the original were not fit for purpose. These were year long works, some of which is still outstanding. I have invoices totalling £25k for my proportion of these costs. Can I treat these as an allowable expense as the works are repairs rather than enhancements? Thanks

Thank you for your question.

Providing the roof has not been enhanced
i.e. had skylights/velux widows fitted then you would be able to claim the cost as a revenue repair .

This also applies to the pipework .

Thank you.
