    Answer is £3600. Basically pension contributions are normally restricted to the level of earned income. The part time job is earned income but property income is investment income and does not count. However there is minimum level of £3600 for everybody.

    Thanks Sloshed. I am studying from the Osborne book, and I can't seem to find that piece of info in there! Thank you for your answer and I will be sure to remember that now.
