Thanks.As a non-resident landlord, you are due to submit tax returns to disclose UK source income and pay tax on any profit I'm afraid. Take a look here for information on your eligibility for personal tax allowances.If you submit your returns late and/or pay any tax due late then you will get penalties I'm afraid. Take a look here for information on the penalties which are charged for late filing of tax returns and for late payment of tax due.For example, the 2012/13 tax return covering the year ended 5 April 2013 was due to be submitted by 31 January 2014 at the latest. Miss it by one day and you get fined £100. The fines mount up as the delay in submission gets longer. You can appeal against penalties.As you are a non-resident landlord, you should be aware of the non-resident landlord scheme which you can read about here.
You should notify HMRC of your address abroad so that you get notifications from HMRC earlier.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
