This will depend on whether you carry out the process for a lease extension under the formal or informal route.
If you extend your lease formally then you will only have to pay a “peppercorn rent” which means no ground rent at all.
If you extend your lease informally by negotiating with your landlord, you may still have to pay ground rent depending on what you agree.
Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
