I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Brymbo but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Brymbo and has limited impact for conveyancing in Brymbo 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 establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I am the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Brymbo. The Brymbo property was put into my name in November.

Is the property unsalable for six months?
