We are advised by the vendors that 114 years remain unexpired on the Lease, that the service charge is approximately £1,500 per annum which includes building insurance and the ground rent is £250.00 per annum.
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; as such we expect there to be some future legislation that forms the basis of a solution to this issue.
