Depreciation Estimates For New Investment Properties
For a property to be considered new for tax purposes it must be brand new at the time it became an investment for the current owner. If it was a primary place of residence for the current owner before becoming an investment it is no longer considered ‘new’.
There is also a 6-month grace period from the date of completion where the property is still considered new. This is common when buying a completed property from a developer.
If the current owner’s tenants were not the first people to live in the property the property is deemed secondhand. Depreciation estimates for secondhand properties can be found here.
