Thank you for your question

If you are in receipt of property income, this is taxable and you need to register for self assessment and file a tax return.

More information in who must send a tax return is covered here- see point two (if you have £2,500 or more in untaxed income).

Tax implications are -

This income (income less expenses) would be reported on supplementary pages SA105 - UK property and form part of your total income from all sources during the tax year.

You are allowed personal allowance against total income (current tax year the allowance is £11,000) and the balance is taxed at your marginal rate of tax. Provided your total taxable income is below £32,000 then your income will be taxed at basic rate of 20%.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
