    Hi there, we have a depreciation schedule for our property which was our place of residence before we purchased our current house, now its a rental. Whilst not a tax deduction, could the things you did in preparation be placed on a depreciation schedule? I am not sure of the answer.

    Thanks heaps everyone. This has been helpful and I understand what you're saying better than the accountant.
    I will follow up with my accountant on the depreciation aspect since she's not including any depreciation. Having said that, the property was only rented for 2.5 months in the financial year, maybe the depreciation wasn't enough to bother with for such a short time.
    Thanks for all your help. This is where BH is great!

    I strongly advise spending $400-700 on a quantity surveyor report to determine how much depreciation you can claim every year. The fee for the report is tax deductible.
