I own a freehold property in Kirkby Stephen but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Kirkby Stephen and has limited impact for conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
