I purchased a freehold premises in Crystal Palace but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Crystal Palace and has limited impact for conveyancing in Crystal Palace 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Crystal Palace I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Crystal Palace in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
