Moving into LTC property

Question from Lana updated on 27th April 2012:

I plan to move into my own rental property which is under LTC. Do I have to sell the property to myself with the market value? Can I just move in and stop claiming the expenses?

Our expert Mark Withers responded:

The costs are certainly non-deductible from the point the property becomes a private asset. A LTC is a business structure which is unsuitable for ownership of a private home. I suggest you restructure it to something more suited to your new arrangement.
