Response


- Previous to 25th Dec 2011 the half yearly charge for Ground rent was £7,750. (£238.46 per property there are a total of 65 properties making the charge £15,500 per annum)

- Charging periods 25th June – 24th December for £7,750, then another £7,750 from 25th December to 24th June.

Below are the half yearly amounts of Ground rent charged to the management company. The amounts reflect the lease extensions the Council has received, so the property who has paid a premium is no longer charged ground rent in our calculations:
