Does this apply if the house was not rented? Having a bear of a time selling Dad's house. He died over a year ago. Unfortunately, the value it was inherited at is less than what he paid for it.IP Loss on a personal residence isn't deductible. Yes, but if the house was inherited and not used by the beneficiary (or family member) as a principal/secondary residence, I would argue that the house is investment property. If sold to an unrelated party, a loss would be a deductible long-term capital loss. Ira
