You may consult BIR on this.They have a one stop counter in every office. I would consider this as an installment sale and you're right, it should only be taxed on your "gains"

General Discussion / Capital Gains Tax Imposed on Sale of Property Under Bank Mortgage
« Last post by woulfe27 on December 21, 2016, 10:18:38 PM »
I have an Avida condo unit that is under mortgage with BPI, and I already paid 1M of the total cost of the unit. I'm selling the unit for 2.4M and BPI said they will help the buyer get a loan so that he may continue with the payments. The plan is for the buyer to pay me 1M and the rest (1.4M) will be financed by BPI via a new loan account under the buyer's name. However, BPI is not sure how the capital gains tax will be applied. Will the capital gains tax be applied to the 1M that the buyer will pay me or will it be applied to the 2.4M cost of the unit?

I checked BIR Form 1706 and there are several options available for computing the tax base that will be used to determine the capital gains tax, but it's all very confusing (Cash Sale, Installment Sale, Foreclosure Sale, etc.). I just think that it isn't fair to impose the capital gains tax on the 2.4M when in reality, I will only earn "gains" from the 1M that the buyer will pay me, and the rest will be received by Avida as payment from the buyer via BPI (through a home loan ).

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
If you have somehow acquired a poor credit rating in the past you may have been turned away from bank after bank who is not willing to give you a home loan. There are a number of ways in which you may have been labelled as a credit risk. Loan or mortgage arrears, defaults, judgements, bankruptcy and even company liquidation.

Even if you have entirely paid your judgement or default, this can affect your credit history from lodgement date for 5 to 7 years, even debts you thought may have gone away can come back and ruin your dreams if it is re-lodged by another company. Trying to obtain a loan can become a nightmare simply because you made a few mistakes in the past. But whatever the reason, Bank Said No believe in second chances and that sometimes, the unavoidable just happens, and it doesnít mean you are a risk forever.

Just wanting to know if I could get guidance or advice / advice on what I should do; As I think about buying a mortgage and renting a real estate, then reselling it at a later date. I am only an 18-year-old Apprentice engineer from England, who earns about £ 1,250 a month without the attached chains (just the phone bill, personal items and keep).

Any help I will be grateful for! ......

P.S I am looking into saving obviously and to start investing once I have the correct amount money.

Agree also with this. I only have a condo as an investment and halfway home. I still love living and sleeping in a single detached home with a garden and fresh air....but that's me.

It is important to know all of the factors when deciding on which one to buy.

What is best for you?

This is a question that only you can answer, but one that some people donít think about long enough before answering. The answer really comes down to your lifestyle, and your wants and needs.

If you have a large family and want a yard with space for them to use freely, you really enjoy your space, privacy, then a condo probably isnít for you.

If you live a busy life and would like to simplify your living arrangements by having virtually no yard work or snow removal, then a condo may be what youíre looking for.
