No ground rent is applicable; however there is a service charge of circa £398 pcm which includes buildings insurance, heating costs, upkeep of the communal areas and water. This increased service charge is due to repairs that have needed to be carried out this year but our client has informed us that it is anticipated to reduce to £295 pcm next year.
We have not been able to check this information via an inspection of the lease and management agreement and prospective buyers should consult their own solicitor for verification.
