Can I claim tax relief on rent?

Rent relief is one of a number of tax reliefs that have been squeezed in recent years: it is currently being phased out

8th November, 2015

I’m in my late 30s and hoping to buy a house next year, but for now I’m still renting. Every cent I have is going towards my house deposit. A friend mentioned that I might be entitled to claim tax relief on my rent. Can I?

Answer: Whether you can claim rent relief or not depends on whether you were renting a property in December 2010.
