My tenants leave in late July and I’d like to paint the whole interior and update the kitchen cabinets. Is there any issue - related to tax deduction - if I don’t advertise it straight away for rent, while I paint etc? Does the interest on the loan become non-deductible because It’s not available for those two weeks? I can either take it off the market for a couple of weeks or alternatively let tenants see it while it is being done up. I suspect it won’t lease straight away anyway.
