At the heart of general practice since 1960

If I quit as a partner, can I continue to own the premises and charge rent to my successors?

I am nearly 56 years old. I have two partners and I own the pupose built building in which we practice. For various reasons, including the recent threatened imposition of a new contract, I am considering leaving the practice and working as a locum.

Can I continue to own the premises and charge rent to my successors? I know that I can continue to accrue pensionable income as a locum, are there any pitfalls of this?
