Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.

I'm afraid that the rent your mother pays for her accommodation cannot be claimed as an expense against the rent she receives from the letting of the property she owns. Take a look here for information on letting expenses that can be claimed.

I hope this clarifies things for you but let me know if you have any further questions.
