Live in a apartment landlord sells property still live there but the rent goes to different landlord now.
I live in Ontario, Canada. Please provide a response to the below question specific to my geographic region.
Is there any way to reduce my EBT as a landlord if I have purchased typical tools needed to conduct repairs, maintenance, and/or renovations deemed as capital spending (installing metal roof) for my rental property? I do not want to start up a company to achieve this even if that would work.
You can claim CCA on your purchased tools to reduce your revenues before taxes, however, the building has to be available for rent (or 90% already rented) before you claim the CCA. You can use the CCA to reduce your rent to zero but not to create a loss.
Any capital expenses that are attached to the building (roof) falls in the same class as the building. Capital expenses that are not attached (deck) fall in class 8. Similarly, tools and appliances are claimed under class8.

I hope this was helpful.
