Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I previously registered and paid a leaseholder flat’s management company and freeholder called Y and Y management for a “consent to let” last year where I stated the tenancy was for 60 months. They have now come back to charge for this again and intend to charge for this every single year.
I know most freeholders charge this per tenancy (which again is arguable depending on the actual charge, as the law says it must be reasonable), but can they charge for this every single year even for the same tenancy?
The lease says leaseholder requires freeholder’s written consent and ‘written consent of landlord which shall not be unreasonably withheld’, no charge or charge frequency was mentioned.
