    Are they in receipt of rent or paying it themselves?

    No tax relief any more if you are paying rent. You can claim 75% of mortgage interest if you are in receipt of rent.

    Yes they are paying it themselves. When did this type of relief stop ? Can they claim for prior years if they have proof of payment

    They can go back a few years I think. But it won't be much if anything at this stage. Call revenue would be your best bet.
