Why Ground Rents?

Morgoed Estates is one of largest owners of ground rents in the UK with a portfolio covering some 50,000 properties.

Classically, a ground rent is a sum charged for the right to occupy and use land owned by the landlord or lessor. The tenant or lessee occupies the land on the terms of a lease which is usually for a set term of years at a nominal fixed or rising rent. Ground rents come in all shapes and sizes from a peppercorn rent covering a single house to commercial ground rents covering large areas at rents of many tens of thousands of pounds per annum. The term is also often used to include rentcharges which are a subject all of their own.
