    End of attention

    You can claim the cost of fees such as regular management fees or commissions you pay to a property agent or real estate agent for managing, inspecting or collecting rent for a rental property on your behalf.

    You are unable to claim the cost of:

    • commissions or other costs paid to a real estate agent or other person for the sale or disposal of a rental property
    • buyer's agent fees paid to any entity or person you engage to find you a suitable rental property to purchase.

    These costs may form part of the cost base of your property for capital gains purposes.
