For rental properties, is it normal to include mileage to and from the property as an expense?

Surely it must be, but its something I've neve dealt with.. thanks.

    Good question. Logic says it should be allowable, but I don't know offhand. Have a look in the Manual?

    Mileage

    Landlords CAN claim for travelling expenses to and from the rental property.

    As a landlord, you need to travel from property to property to collect rent, visit tenants, maintain properties etc, so all allowable as a business expense.
    I assume we are talking about a professional landlord and not someone who just rents one house out?

    If it's a business then I don't think it is in doubt - I assumed the question related to a private individual, in which case, it ought to be allowed, but I dont know offhand.
