    Ground rent payment by other leaseholders

    I have been asked for backdated ground rent by the freeholder which is fine as within the terms of the lease.

    I want to know if this backdated ground rent has also been requested to other leaseholders as I’m not convinced it has been, and the freeholder won’t tell me. Do I have any rights to demand this information? Thanks.

    No, and he can only claim back ground rent after correctly serving s166 notice.
    How many years back?

      Thanks. 3 years backdated ground rent and all correctly requested.

      I don’t think he has asked for this from all the leaseholders, but I guess I have no way of finding out other than conversations with those leaseholders I know.

        There is no obligation for freeholders to collect the ground rent that a lease entitles them to, and there is therefore no reason why they would have to ask all leaseholders to pay their ground rent (however unfair that might seem).

          Your flat may be the only one in arrears of ground rent. Consult the other leaseholders about collectively buying the freehold title.

              On one hand people may argue, the freeholder has rights to access and assess the property in accordance with the lease whenever it is reasonable or essential to do so. However if you initiate the disrepair protocol you will have much more leverage, but it is not for bluffing...

              Hi All,

              The flat upstair has been leaking for some years. The ceiling soon partially collapsed stopping me fro m letting the flat. The leaseholder upstairs kept claiming that the leak was not coming from her flat despite sending them photos of her wet subfloor. I sent a letter claiming...

              When the freehold of our building was sold, the old freeholder cancelled the buildings insurance which we had paid for in advance through our service charge.

              A new policy was taken out by the new freeholder. A refund for the previous policy has been given to the previous freeholder but...

              I’ve managed to get the refund from the previous insurers, which is good, over £1,000 that we wouldn’t have had otherwise in our funds.

            • Section 20 notice of planned works not disclosed by vendor
              by Lexa
              Hi all

              I purchased a flat last August and asked my solicitor specifically to check if any section 20 notices for planned works have been served. Their report dated 31/07/21 states no and so does the Leasehold Management Pack issued by the Manco dated 8 June 2021. I now received a letter...

              @sglacy - The works the notice has been served for are part of a cyclical decoration programme on the wider estate and there was no way to foresee any works being planned without being made aware of the notices or plans of works. It might have been evident to the vendor but not to me. The point is...
