I own a freehold premises in Hornsea yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Hornsea and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hornsea 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 fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be extinguished.

Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Hornsea.
