According to RBC, formally the land plot on which the businessman's mansion stands, belongs to the monarch. Abramovich has to pay 10,000 pounds (1.4 million rubles) to the British treasury annually for land lease.
However, now the billionaire cannot pay the rent, as his assets in the UK were frozen due to sanctions .
This is an elite mansion built in 1848, which is located in the gardens of Kensington Palace, not far from the home of Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton.
It is noted that in the event of rent arrears the billionaire risks losing his property.
On March 10, the UK imposed sanctions against a number of Russian businessmen, including Abramovich. They froze assets in the country, banned transactions with British individuals and legal entities, and banned entry into the territory of the kingdom.
The businessman was also affected by the ban on owning, registering, moving and using sea and air vehicles.
