    There is no requirement for notice of charges at all, so, with one year's ground rent, the grand total is £13.65.

    I guess they were hoping the lease had said not less than one guinea, rather than an unqualified one guinea, in which case they could probably have got away with £50.

We have had instances of Members being sued for libel for posts they made about certain organisations. UK libel laws are very onerous and organisations are often willing to pursue anyone through the courts to protect their hard won reputations. Even if you are confident about your facts, a libel action must be defended and the legal costs involved are substantial – even if you win. If you lose, you could have to pay your own legal costs, those of the applicant, any damages awarded, and any costs for related parties such as those of LandlordZONE – as a forum Member you have agreed to indemnify LandlordZONE against any and all legal costs resulting from your actions on these forums.

        In the majority of cases, providing these details to the forum is of no interest to people replying, they will not know or not care about the people / companies involved, but this could turn out costly for you.

          When I last checked this thread was deleted, so I'm glad to see it's restored, thank you for amending what I couldn't. Perhaps that's a feature that should be introduced.

          I will be back with an update after sending a letter with my cheque. Thankfully I saved your suggested letter templates so, watch this space...


            Hi all,

            well, still no response to my letter - however my cheque has now been cashed - so I take that as defeat! Thanks all to confirm, I should still expect the standard 'invoice' ahead of my 18/19 ground rent to remind me each year?


              Yes..GR must be demanded in accordance with S166 -

              It not complicated though..and doesnt need extra docs like for example service charge demands do.
              Advice given is based on my experience representing myself as a leaseholder both in the County Court and at Leasehold Valuation Tribunals.

              I do not accept any liability to you in relation to the advice given.

              It is always recommended you seek further advice from a solicitor or legal expert.

              Always read your lease first, it is the legally binding contract between leaseholder and freeholder.
