I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Ardwick but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Ardwick and has limited impact for conveyancing in Ardwick 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 generation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous 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.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the property agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we appoint the agent's preferred lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Ardwick
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to use your preferred Ardwick conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
