We are advised by the vendor that the apartment is held on a 125 year Lease from 8th January 2010, so approximately 117 years remain. We have been advised by the vendor that the annual service charge is approximately £1.026.00 and that the annual ground rent is £260.00.
It has been bought to our attention that the ground rent charges referred to in the lease double every 20 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.
The Council Tax Band is "C" and the amount payable for the year 2017/18 is £1,418.97.
