If the appraisal was required by the lender it is added to the cost of the loan and amortized.
The inspection and title search are part of the cost of acquisition. These are capitalized and added to depreciable basis.
Everything said earlier is correct.
Costs of acquiring the property may include appraisal fees (initiated BY YOU), title insurance, survey costs, legal fees, inspection cost, and similar closing costs. These buying expenses are not deductible. Instead, they are added to the purchase price of the home to determine its tax basis.
Whats not included in the tax basis are:
a) Fire insurance premiums
b) Rent or other charges relating to occupancy of the property before closing
C) charges connected to getting a loan:
1) Points (discount points, loan origination fees) - This is amortized
2) Mortgage insurance premiums,
3) Loan assumption fees,
4) Cost of a credit report, and
5) Fees for an appraisal required by a lender.
