LEASEHOLD

 

LEASE LENGTH. 125 years from 2020.

 

GROUND RENT. £150 PA.

 

MAINTENENCE CHARGE. The block freehold was acquired 2 years ago by Freehold Managers PLC, who have installed Principle Estate Management to manage the block. Whilst costs of service and maintenance are being assessed, the 4 owners in Queensdale Court are currently paying a high rate of £1000 every 6 months. They have made 3 x 6 monthly payments so far and the excess is building up a ‘sinking fund’. This is expected to come down to circa £1000-1200 PA in the future - in line with those of similarly sized, low demand blocks (just four flats, no elevator, modest hall & garden maintenance requirements) E.g. Kingsvale Court in Pittard Road charges are £95 PCM
