Does the lease permit the freeholder/ground rent company to impose legal fees on you?
Sorry, I was offline.

You need to check if your lease allows the freeholder to charge legal fees in the event of default of ground rent.
You may pay the ground rent and dispute the legal fees element. They would need to take you to court to recover that element and you may defend any claim that they bring on that aspect.
All the best. Please click on 5 stars if this helps.
