I have a property in Coventry on which I have paid ground rent,

Customer Question

I have a property in Coventry on which I have paid ground rent, by bi-annual Direct Debit since about 1985. I received my latest bill of £10, dated 02 Dec and paid on 01 Jan. I received a letter, dated 17th December stating that my GR was due for review on 29 September 2005, yes 2005 and has been increased to £77.54 per annum and that I owed £571.53. Is it in order for them, having omitted to apply the increase for 9 years, to request 9 years back settlement ?

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

Are you planning on selling any time soon?

Does the lease allow for increase in ground rent?

Can you afford to pay it?
