Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

It is a worldwide convention that rentals and pensions are taxed in country of origin. You will have to self assess unless HMRC tells you not to bother in future. You can do this online, the procedure is here:

Thank you for your support.

This rental may be taxable in your overseas location too and you will have to rely on the Double Taxation Treaty, if any, for protection.
