Where husband and wife jointly own rental property, the legislation assumes that they will each be taxed on 50% of the income unless they declare that ownership of the property is in different proportions (say 90/10) and complete a Declaration of Beneficial Interests – HMRC form 17. There also has to be a Declaration of Trust as evidence of this.
Here’s a link to quite a good article on the subject.

What I’m not sure about is whether this can cause problems with a lender if there is a joint mortgage and you want to change the proportions.
