Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you, if you have received no demand for the ground rent in the last six years, the only ground rent you will be liable for is as far back as 2010. Any ground rent charged before 2010 will be statute barred. Have you received a demand in the last 6 years? Kind regards AJ

Hi, Thank you. In theory you would be liable for any demand up to 2010 - any ground rent not charge before 2010 would be statute barred. Kind regards AJ
