Back In 2008, I bought a leasehold flat in Kinver. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Kinver who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Kinver conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Where you purchase the property you will have to meet this contribution, usually in instalments accross the year. This may vary from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a ground rent for you to pay annual, this is usually not a significant figure, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to check as sometimes it could be many hundreds of pounds.
