Liabilities: investigating liabilities: property repairs

If deductions have been made for property repairs you should check that the property in question has been repaired and the benefits of the repairs are included in the estate. If the tax at stake is worthwhile, you should consider asking whether the repairs were covered by insurance or local authority grants.
