I purchased a freehold property in Brixham but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Brixham and has limited impact for conveyancing in Brixham but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Brixham I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brixham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
