Client’s mother signed 4 houses over to her years ago. Mother has since let the 4 properties out and not declared income. Client has now received letter from HMRC to say she is liable for tax due. Client had never received a penny of this rent. I understand that the person named on the deeds is liable. Situation worsened by the fact that the client and mother had a bad fall out a couple years back. Is there any way that the liability can be moved from client to mother? I remember reading about a case which was very similar to this but can’t recall where I read it

Who is liable for tax on rent?
Is the person named on deeds always liable for tax on rent??
