Your father has to register in the UK person register data. I think its similar than in Spain, once you want to be registrered here you ask for it at the City hall
As the inheritance mather, the tax you have to pay here, will depend on the law of the atonomy comunity where the propiety is, because every one has diferent rules
Most of autonomy comunity has 99 per cent off in inheritance taxes or donations when the person who recibed is a son
With the register data of the propiety if you call the telephone sistem of the tax agency of the autonomy comunity they will tell you exactly the account you have to pay in case od donation and in case of inheritance. Probably you got an english speaking person there.
Remember you have also to pay the plusvalue tax ( diferent one ) in the City hall 30 days later of you recibed the propiety.
Once you hace paid the taxes, you could go to the notario and propiety register in order to get the propiety under your own name.
