I believe the Lease that has been redrawn after the lease renewal states that the Freeholder may request for ground rent to be paid.
However this is the comments of the tenant
Ground Rent: I’m also not due to pay any more ground rent from 6 July 2012 as I renewed my lease with Paul (ground rent is now a peppercorn). Therefore for 2012, let’s pro-rate the £75 by half so £37.50 should be taken off 2012 and nothing should be charged for 2013.
Is this correct that he should not pay anymore? (even though in the lease it says that the Freeholder may exercise the request of ground rent?
What does peppercorn truly means?
