I have looked everywhere for an answer for this but have not yet found one either in the forum or on the web. I am hoping that someone will be able to just tell me what to do.

I understand the W&T allowance perfectly - no problem but when I come to sell the buy to let property can I add the cost of say the furniture as after all it is a capital outlay to the cost of the property or as I have had the W&T allowance I can't.

No you can't. They aren't part of the fabric so not available as a deduction. Sell them separately.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA
