It depends on the terms of your ground lease. Either you or the landlord (or a combination of both) will have to pay Baltimore property tax bill, which will include both the ground and the house. Read your ground lease or have a Maryland lawyer read it and explain your tax obligations to you.

Best of luck.*****The above is for informational purposes only and does not create an attorney-client privilege.******
