I have owned a leasehold property since 1995. After I bought it I rented it out having received permission from the freeholder. I then lived in the property for many years, but more recently I have rented it out again. The freehold was sold at some point and now I have received a letter from the new freeholder saying they believe the property is rented and asking:
1) to see the permission to rent from the earlier freeholder (I don’t know if I still have this as it was back in 1995),
2) for £130 regarding the latest tenancy
3) money in respect of any earlier tenancies (which they want listed).
Under the terms of the lease the freeholder does seem to have the right to charge each time the lessee rents out the property. But having not been asked to pay anything for 23 years, is the freeholder within their rights to ask for money now, including in regard to past tenancies.
