Ground leasing can be described in brief as the leasing of land for residential/holiday homes or for commercial development. Recently, ground leasing connected to housing and holiday homes has been the subject of extensive discussion in terms of the determination of base rent along with lease extensions. It is anticipated that 2014–2015 will see changes in the law that will hopefully reduce the number of disputes within this field of law.
