I purchased a freehold property in Ruabon but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Ruabon and has limited impact for conveyancing in Ruabon 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 creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Ruabon I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ruabon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
