What is a ground rent?

A ground rent, often a nominal amount such as £100 per annum, is created when a property is sold on a long lease. This typically occurs when a block of flats is built so that individual ownership of the leaseholds on each flat can be created. However, selling new houses on long leases is also common. Whether buying a house or a flat, the purchaser of the lease is obliged to pay the ground rent for the life of their lease and could forfeit their lease in the event that they default. It is estimated that £800 million of ground rents were created from newly constructed flats between 2005 and 2010. Lease lengths vary considerably with 125 years being the most common, however leases may be for as long as 999 years.
