I received no rent and paid all utility expences.
Does the fact that my father owned half the property until his death in 1995 have any bearing on the matter ?
No, any tax due on death would have been included in his estate for Inheritance Tax (IHT) purposes and the matter long settled. Save in the cases of Potentially Exempt Transfers, which is not the case here, IHT liability does not cascade down to other parties.
