Replacement of domestic items relief

The replacement of domestic items relief is a tax relief that you can use to claim costs related to replacing things like furniture, household appliances, kitchenware, etc., if you’re a landlord and earn rental income. It replaced the Wear and Tear Allowance in 2016 (this allowance used to let you claim 10% off your rent as a fixed “maintenance” cost).

What qualifies as a “domestic item”:

  • the item must be used only by your tenant
  • also, the item must be a replacement of the original one – it can’t be new or a significant improvement.

You can’t claim the replacement of domestic items relief if you are also claiming the Rent a Room relief or if the property is a furnished holiday letting.
