The apartment is held on a Lease for a term of 125 years from 1st January 2007, therefore 113 years remain unexpired. We understand the following sums are payable:
Ground rent:- £250 per annum
Buildings insurance:- £165 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 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 £1,501.26.
