Hi , I am a 65 year old female who is in the process of selling my house . I am intending moving into a rental property and buying a flat for my son with the vast majority of the money £120,000 approx , I will buy the flat in my name and rent it out to my son . My question is this , do I have to charge him rent ? And if so how much ?
Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

You don't have to charge rent to your son if you so wish.
If you decide to charge him rent then this rental income would be taxable income in your hands and you have to declare it on your tax return.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
