The apartment is held on a 125 year Lease from 1st January 2007, therefore approximately 114 years remain unexpired. We are advised by the vendor of the following:
Annual ground rent payable is currently £250.00 (payable half yearly).
Annual maintenance charge is currently £1,360.20 (payable half yearly).
Annual Buildings Insurance is currently £140.32.
Quarterly invoices for gas, electricity and water are issued by the management company.
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.
The Council Tax Band is "C".
The amount payable for the year 2018/19 is £1501.26.
