I purchased a property in 2011 at auction,The solicitor was unable to locate the leaseholder.Recently I remortgaged and this time she was able to contact and yesterday I received this response.
We can confirm the ground rent is not up to date and have been informed we can only claim a maximum of six years.
Ground rent charge £2.97 per annum x 6 £17.82
Notice charge £25.00
Admin fee £75.00
Total due £117.82
I am wrong to be outraged at this given that the actual ground rent I owe for the three years is less than a tenner.
