If you own a rental property in the UK but you are living abroad outside the UK for a period of 6 months or more, then you are an Overseas Landlord and need to comply with the Non-Resident Landlords (NRL) scheme which sets rules around how you pay tax.
The scheme requires UK letting agents to deduct basic rate tax from any rent they collect for non-resident landlords, which you can set off against your own tax bill at the end of the year.
