    What you need to know

    Some legal expenses incurred in producing your rental income are deductible, for example, the cost of evicting a non-paying tenant or recovering unpaid rent.

    Most legal expenses, however, are of a capital nature and are therefore not deductible-including costs of:

    • resisting land resumption
    • purchasing or disposing of your property, and
    • defending your title to the property.
