Ground Rents Information

When considering a commercial property, it is crucial to understand the concept of ground rent and how it may affect your financial obligations as a property owner or tenant. Below is detailed information about ground rents specific to commercial properties listed on House Right.

What is Ground Rent? Ground rent is a regular payment made by the leaseholder of a property to the freeholder or landlord. This payment is for the land on which the property is built. It is commonly found in leasehold agreements and is an important factor to consider when evaluating the total cost of a commercial property.

Key Points about Ground Rent:

  1. Lease Agreement: Ground rent is typically outlined in the lease agreement and is payable by the leaseholder to the freeholder. The amount and payment frequency will be specified in the lease terms.
  2. Fixed or Variable Amount: Ground rent can be a fixed amount or may be subject to periodic reviews or increases, often linked to inflation or a set formula detailed in the lease.
  3. Payment Frequency: Payments are usually made annually or semi-annually. It is essential to check the lease for specific payment dates and amounts.
  4. Rent Reviews: The lease may include provisions for rent reviews at specified intervals. This can result in increases in the ground rent payable. Be aware of these review dates and the basis for any increases.
  5. Legal Obligations: Failure to pay ground rent can result in legal consequences, including potential forfeiture of the lease. Ensure that you understand your obligations and set reminders for payment due dates.
