My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Herefordshire. Conveyancing and Alliance & Leicester mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in Herefordshire who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Herefordshire conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Herefordshire Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Queries before Purchasing
The majority of Herefordshire leasehold properties will be liable to pay a service charge for maintenance of the building set on behalf of the freeholder. Where you acquire the flat you will have to meet this liability, normally periodically during the year. This could be anything from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal areas. In all likelihood there will be a ground rent to be met yearly, this is usually not a large amount, say about £25-£75 but you need to check as occasionally it could be surprisingly expensive. Who manages the block? In the main the outlay for major works tend not to be wrapped into the maintenance charges, albeit that a few managing agents in Herefordshire obliged leasehold owners to pay into a reserve fund created for the specific purpose of establishing a fund for major works.
