بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1187/917/H=10/1434)

The daughter did not become owner merely by transferring the name. Mrs. A shall remain its owner until it is not given into complete possession of daughter B. It is right for Mrs A to receive the rent and she shall also pay zakah on the rent (if applicable).

Allah knows Best!
