I purchased a freehold premises in Skelmersdale but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Skelmersdale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Skelmersdale 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 date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Skelmersdale come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Skelmersdale usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying.
