Re: Investment in London, UK property?

If it's any help, I had a 30min meeting with a solicitor to complete tax forms in the UK, which were met with a 'not appropriate' resonse from HMRC. I phoned HMRC and their staff (whilst being a miserable bunch), were actually very helpful.

Turned out that renting out a property that was your primary UK home before moving abroad, is taxed differently to renting out a buy to let investment property. As you've inherited this property, and if you don't own anything else in the UK, you might be able to convince them that it would be your primary residence if you return to the UK. It's definitely worth giving them a call, but don't expect patience or good manners when you do.
