My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Shenfield. Conveyancing and Birmingham Midshires 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 1994. The conveyancing practitioner in Shenfield who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Shenfield conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

How is the lease structured? Generally speaking the cost for major works tend not to be wrapped into the service charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Shenfield require leasehold owners to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance.
