Hi All, I have just completed a simple retain and build. The plan is to hold both front and back. I have funded this project through a mortgage and also by forking out some cash out of my savings as I had hit my maximum borrowing capacity. What is the usual practice to determine the base capital cost for the project ? If I want to sell it one day, say 10 years from now, I'd want to minimise my CGT and at that time there is no way I'd be able to remember all the capital I've spent on the project. Do I get both properties evaluated ? If I get a bank to evaluate them, they'd use a conservative evaluation and that can't be advantageous for me.
