Dear Editor,

I've rented my condo and would like to know if these are deductible:
- Real Estate Agent's commission
- Sinking fund (imposed by condo management)
- Service charges for repairs (in addition to costs of repairs)
- Installation costs of air-cond and water heater requested by tenant

Thank you.

Regards,
Sharon

Dear Sharon,

My answers are as below:

- Real Estate Agent's commission
Answer: This is deductible, provided that this is not the first time the condo is rented out to generate rental income.

- Sinking fund (imposed by condo management)
Answer: Deductible, since this is an expense in connection with the production of rental income.

- Service charges for repairs (in addition to costs of repairs)
Answer: Deductible, as long as these are not capital expenditure but are revenue deduction incurred for the wear and tear of the premises.

- Installation costs of air-cond and water heater requested by tenant
Answer: Not deductible and not qualified for capital allowance (tax depreciation) since there is capital expenditure incurred by the landlord and the landlord is not carrying a rental business.
