Are you talking about your residential property that you live in? If so then you cannot deduct any expenses against this cost as it is of a personal nature.

It is residential - so you mean the owner may not claim what we pay from his tax even if the bills are under his name but paid by us
Thx

He should not be able to claim this as you make the payment and therefore it is not his expense.

Yes that is correct, the owner cannot claim for deductions which he does not pay for himself.
