I own a leasehold house in Urmston. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1994.

The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion.
