The apartment is held on a Lease of 125 years from 1st January 2007, therefore 114 years remain unexpired. We are advised by the vendor that the current annual service charge payable is £1,501.90, the annual ground rent payable is £250.00 and the annual buildings insurance is £176.89.
The apartment is LEASEHOLD.
The Council Tax Band is "C" and the amount payable for the year 2017/18 is £1,418.97.
It has been bought to our attention that the ground rent charges referred to in the lease double every fifteen years and as such any prospective buyer needs to take the relevant legal advice on this matter and be fully satisfied with regard to this prior to committing to purchase. It is also our understanding that this has recently been highlighted as a common issue with leasehold properties and the current government are aware of the same and as such we expect there to be some future legislation that forms the basis of a solution to this issue.
