It’s unusual for properties in Gants Hill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Gants Hill 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

Most buyers of new build property in Gants Hill approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Gants Hill typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties.

It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Gants Hill or who has acted in the same development.
