Ground Rent Demand Notice to assist you in issuing your ground rent demands correctly.
When making a demand for Ground Rent, the demand must be issued in a prescribed form, as set out in Section 166 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
The form must be issued in its entirety – including the ‘notes to leaseholders’ and ‘notes to landlords’.
The dates are important!
Timing is key when it comes to ground rent demands.
The date for payment of the ground rent given in the notice cannot be earlier than 30 days from the date notice is given, nor more than 60 days after that date.
The date for payment cannot be earlier than the date set out in the lease itself.
If you need to recover several years’ worth of ground rent arrears, we recommend you use a separate form for each period of ground rent arrears.
