What are the real costs of becoming an accidental landlord?

The cost of becoming an accidental landlord is mounting up. If you’re an accidental landlord, you’ve been attacked on three tax fronts by the Conservative Government changes. The first is the Section 24 Tenant Tax change, which means for the 2020-21 tax year you’ll only receive basic rate tax relief for mortgage interest on your rental property. The second hit to your pocket is the additional 3% Stamp Duty (SDLT) you have to pay on each subsequent property you buy whilst owning your investment property. The final tax-nail in the accidental landlord coffin is the planned changes to Capital Gains Tax (CGT). This final change is to the CGT relief on your principle private residence to Capital Gains Tax when you sell your Principle Private Residence (PPR). If you let a property that was once your PPR, any CGT relief will be lost under these new rules.
