Hi, I have a question........ I have a mortgage and live in my home and have done for 7 years now. I would like to know if I leave and rent an apartment instead, so pay rent where I will be living and also pay my mortgage payments as usual, and rent this house to my daughter, can I claim the loss of rent to mortgage and maintanence etc. when I do my tax return next year ? I realise that most people live in their homes then buy a second to rent out for this purpose, but I was wondering then, if I could benefit tax wise, by doing it the way I have described? Thanks for any advice or information.
