Restricting ground rents for flat owners

Following the King’s Speech on 07 November 2023, The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has commenced public consultation around a series of options for how the government could intervene to cap the ground rent leaseholders currently pay.

The consultation outlines 5 options:

  • capping ground rents at a peppercorn
  • setting maximum financial value for ground rent
  • capping ground rents at a percentage of the property value,
  • limiting ground rent to the original value when the lease was agreed
  • freezing ground rent at current levels.

The consultation will be open for 6 weeks from 09 November 2023 and any reforms that follow should be introduced through the Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill.

The link below explains how to engage in the consultation.
