Be it enactedby the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

Prohibition and extinguishment

1Meaning of " rentcharge "

For the purposes of this Act " rentcharge" means any annual or other periodic sum charged on or issuing out of land, except—

(a)rent reserved by a lease or tenancy, or

(b)any sum payable by way of interest.

2Creation of rentcharges prohibited

(1)Subject to this section, no rentcharge may be created whether at law or in equity after the coming into force of this section.

(2)Any instrument made after the coming into force of this section shall, to the extent that it purports to create a rentcharge the creation of which is prohibited by this section, be void.

(3)This section does not prohibit the creation of a rentcharge—

(a)which has the effect of making the land on which the rent is charged settled land by virtue of section 1(1)(v) of the Settled Land Act 1925 ;

(b)which would have that effect but for the fact that the land on which the rent is charged is already settled land or is held on trust for sale ;

(c)which is an estate rentcharge ;

(d)under any Act of Parliament providing for the creation of rentcharges in connection with the execution of works on land (whether by way of improvements, repairs or otherwise) or the commutation of any obligation to do any such work; or

(e)by, or in accordance with the requirements of, any order of a court.

(4)For the purposes of this section " estate rentcharge" means (subject to subsection (5) below) a rentcharge created for the purpose—

(a)of making covenants to be performed by the owner of the land affected by the rentcharge enforceable by the rent owner against the owner for the time being of the land; or

(b)of meeting, or contributing towards, the cost of the performance by the rent owner of covenants for the provision of services, the carrying out of maintenance or repairs, the effecting of insurance or the making of any payment by him for the benefit of the land affected by the rentcharge or for the benefit of that and other land.

(5)A rentcharge of more than a nominal amount shall not be treated as an estate rentcharge for the purposes of this section unless it represents a payment for the performance by the rent owner of any such covenant as is mentioned in subsection (4)(b) above which is reasonable in relation to that covenant.

3Extinguishment of rentcharges

(1)Subject to this section, every rentcharge shall (if it has not then ceased to have effect) be extinguished at the expiry of the period of 60 years beginning—

(a)with the passing of this Act, or

(b)with the date on which the rentcharge first became payable,

whichever is the later ; and accordingly the land on which it was charged or out of which it issued shall, at the expiration of that period, be discharged and freed from the rentcharge.

(2)The extinguishment of a rentcharge under this section shall not affect the exercise by any person of any right or remedy for the recovery of any rent which accrues before the rentcharge is so extinguished.

(3)This section shall not have the effect of extinguishing any rentcharge—

(a)which is, by virtue of any enactment or agreement or by custom, charged on or otherwise payable in relation to land wholly or partly in lieu of tithes ; or

(b)which is of a kind referred to in subsection (3) of section 2 above (disregarding subsection (5) of that section).

(4)Subsection (1) above shall not apply to a variable rentcharge ; but where such a rentcharge ceases to be variable, subsection (1) above shall apply as if the date on which the rentcharge first became payable were the date on which it ceased to be variable.

(5)For the purposes of subsection (4) above, a rentcharge shall (at any time) be treated as variable if at any time thereafter the amount of the rentcharge will, or may, vary in accordance with the provisions of the instrument under which it is payable.

Apportionment

4Application for apportionment

(1)The owner of any land which is affected by a rentcharge which also affects land which is not in his ownership may, subject to this section, apply to the Secretary of State for an order apportioning the rentcharge between that land and the remaining land affected by the rentcharge.

(2)The owner of any land which is affected by a rentcharge which does not affect land not in his ownership may apply to the Secretary of State for an order apportioning the rentcharge between such parts of his land as may be specified in the application.

(3)No application for apportionment may be made under this section in respect of—

(a)a rentcharge of a kind mentioned in section 2(3)(d) or 3(3)(a) above, or

(b)land affected by a rentcharge which also affects other land, if the whole of that other land is exonerated or indemnified from the whole of the rentcharge by means of a charge on the first mentioned land.

(4)Every application—

(a)under subsection (1) above, shall specify the amount (if any) equitably apportioned to the applicant's land, and

(b)under subsection (2) above, shall specify the applicant's proposal for apportioning the rentcharge between the parts of his land specified in the application.

(5)Subject to subsection (4) above, every application under this section shall be in such form and shall contain such information and be accompanied by such documents as may be prescribed by regulations.

(6)In any case where the Secretary of State considers that any additional document or information ought to be furnished by the applicant he may require the applicant—

(a)to deliver to him such documents (including documents of title and, in the case of registered land, an authority to inspect the register), and

(b)to furnish him with such information,

as the Secretary of State may specify.

(7)Where an applicant's documents of title are in the custody of a mortgagee the mortgagee shall, if requested to do so by the Secretary of State for the purpose of an application made under this section, deliver those documents to the Secretary of State on such terms as to their custody and return as the mortgagee may reasonably require.

5Apportionment

(1)Where an application for apportionment is made under section 4 above and the Secretary of State is satisfied that he is in a position to do so, he shall prepare a draft order for apportionment of the rentcharge.

(2)If the application is made under section 4(1) above, the amount specified in the draft order as being that part of the rentcharge apportioned to the applicant's land shall be—

(5)After service of a draft order on the rent owner or his agent under subsection (4) above, the rent owner may, before the expiry of the period of 21 days beginning with the date on which the draft order is served (or such longer period, not exceeding the period of 42 days beginning with that date, as the Secretary of State may in a particular case allow)—

(a)object to it on the ground that such an apportionment would provide insufficient security for any part of the rentcharge;

(b)make an application to the effect that in the event of the apportionment not exceeding the sum mentioned in section 7(2) below, a condition should be imposed under that section.

(6)Where a draft order is served under subsection (4) above on a person who is the owner of any land affected by the rentcharge, that person may, before the expiry of the period of 21 days beginning with the date on which the draft order is served (or such longer period, not exceeding the period of 42 days beginning with that date, as the Secretary of State may in a particular case allow), make representations to the Secretary of State concerning the apportionment specified in the draft order.

(7)Any objection, application or representations under subsection (5) or (6) above shall be made in writing.

(8)An objection under subsection (5) above shall state what apportionment (if any) would in the opinion of the rent owner provide sufficient security for the rentcharge or, as the case may be, part of the rentcharge.

(9)The Secretary of State shall consider any objection duly made under subsection (5) above and any representations duly made under subsection (6) above and, if he is satisfied that the draft order should be modified—

(a)in the case of an objection, in order to preserve for the rent owner sufficient security for each apportioned part of the rentcharge, or

(a)the relevant period has expired without any objection or representation having been duly made, or

the Secretary of State shall, if the applicant has not then withdrawn his application and the Secretary of State is satisfied that it is appropriate to do so, make an order (an " apportionment order ") in the form of the draft but incorporating—

(i)any modifications made by the Secretary of State in accordance with subsection (9) above, and

(ii)where appropriate, a condition imposed by virtue of section 7(2) below.

(11)Immediately after making an apportionment order the Secretary of State shall serve copies of the order on the applicant and on the person appearing to him to be the rent owner or his agent, and, in a case falling within subsection (2)(b) above, on those other persons on whom copies of the draft order were served under subsection (4) above.

7Effect of apportionment order

(1)An apportionment order shall, subject to subsection (2) below, have effect—

(a)on the expiry of the period of 28 days beginning with the day on which it is made, or

(b)where an appeal against the order has been duly made under section 6 above, on such day as the Lands Tribunal shall specify.

(2)If—

(a)in the case of an application made under section 4(1) above, the part of the rentcharge apportioned to the applicant's land, or

(b)in the case of an application under section 4(2) above, any apportioned part of the rentcharge,

does not exceed the annual sum of £5, then, subject to subsection (3) below, it shall, where an application has been duly made under section 5(3)(b) above, be made a condition of the apportionment order that it shall have effect only for the purpose of the redemption of that part of the rentcharge in accordance with the following provisions of this Act.

(3)The Secretary of State shall not impose a condition under subsection (2) above in any case where he considers that, having regard to all the circumstances, to do so would cause the applicant to suffer financial hardship.

(4)In the case of an application under section 4(1) above, the effect of an apportionment order shall (subject to subsection (2) above) be to release the applicant's land from any part of the rentcharge not apportioned to it and to release the remaining land affected by the rentcharge from such part (if any) of the rentcharge as is apportioned to the applicant's land.

(5)In the case of an application under section 4(2) above, the effect of an apportionment order shall (subject to subsection (2) above) be to release each part of the applicant's land from any part of the rentcharge not apportioned to it.

Redemption

(2)Every application under this section shall be in such form and shall contain such information and be accompanied by such documents as may be prescribed by regulations.

(3)In any case where the Secretary of State considers that any additional document or information ought to be furnished by the applicant he may require the applicant—

(a)to deliver to him such documents (including documents of title and, in the case of registered land, an authority to inspect the register), and

(b)to furnish him with such information,

as the Secretary of State may specify.

(4)No application may be made under this section in respect of a rentcharge of a kind mentioned in section 2(3) or 3(3)(a) above.

(5)An application under this section may only be made—

(a)if the period for which the rentcharge concerned would remain payable if it were not redeemed is ascertainable, and

(b)in the case of a rentcharge which has at any time been a variable rentcharge, if it has ceased to be variable at the time of making the application. For the purposes of this section a rentcharge shall (at any time) be treated as variable if at any time thereafter the amount of the rentcharge will, or may, vary in accordance with the provisions of the instrument under which it is payable.

(6)Where an applicant's documents of title are in the custody of a mortgagee the mortgagee shall, if requested to do so by the Secretary of State for the purpose of an application made under this section, deliver those documents to the Secretary of State on such terms as to their custody and return as the mortgagee may reasonably require.

9Issue of redemption certificate

(1)Where an application for a redemption certificate has been duly made under section 8 above, the Secretary of State shall serve notice of the application (" notice of application ") on the person appearing to him to be the rent owner in relation to the rentcharge to which the application relates or his agent.

(2)A notice of application shall require the person on whom it is served to notify the Secretary of State, before the expiry of the period of 21 days beginning with the date on which the notice of application is served, whether or not he is the rent owner in relation to that rentcharge.

(3)Notification under subsection (2) above shall be given in the form prescribed by regulations and shall contain such information, and be accompanied by such documents, as may be so prescribed.

(4)Where the Secretary of State has been duly notified under subsection (2) above, or the period mentioned in that subsection has expired without his being so notified, he shall serve a notice (" instructions for redemption ") on the applicant for the redemption certificate—

(a)specifying the sum required to redeem the rentcharge (the " redemption price ") calculated in accordance with section 10(1) below, and

(b)naming the person (determined in accordance with section 10(2) below), if any, appearing to the Secretary of State to be the person to whom the redemption price should be paid by the applicant.

(5)After service of instructions for redemption, the Secretary of State shall issue the applicant with a redemption certificate on proof—

(a)that the applicant has, before the expiry of the period of 28 days beginning with the date on which the instructions are served—

(i)paid the amount specified as the redemption price to the person named in the instructions as the person to whom payment should be made, or

(ii)where no person is so named, paid that amount into court in accordance with section 10(4) below, or

(b)in a case where the applicant has been authorised to do so under subsection (6) below, that he has paid that amount into court in accordance with section 10(4) below before the expiry of that period, (or such longer period as the Secretary of State may allow).

(6)For the purposes of subsection (5)(b) above, the Secretary of State may authorise payment into court in any case where he is satisfied that the applicant is unable to effect payment in accordance with the instructions for redemption or that it would be unreasonable to require him to do so.

10Provisions supplemental to section 9

(1)For the purposes of section 9 above, the redemption price shall be calculated by applying the formula:—

where:—

  • P = the redemption price ;

  • R = the annual amount of the rentcharge to be redeemed;

  • Y = the yield, expressed as a decimal fraction, from 2 ½ per cent. Consolidated Stock; and

  • n=the period, expressed in years (taking any part of a year as a whole year), for which the rentcharge would remain payable if it were not redeemed. In calculating the yield from 2 ½ per cent. Consolidated Stock, the price of that stock shall be taken to be the middle market price at the close of business on the last trading day in the week before that in which instructions for redemption are served under section 9(4) above.

(2)For the purposes of section 9(4)(b) above, the person to whom the redemption price should be paid is—

(a)in a case where the rentcharge was subject to a mortgage, the mortgagee or, if there is more than one mortgagee, the first mortgagee;

(b)in a case where the rentcharge was not subject to a mortgage but was settled land or was subject to a trust for sale, the trustees ;

(c)in any other case, the rent owner.

(3)Where a redemption certificate has been issued under section 9 above—

(a)it shall have the effect of releasing the applicant's land from the rentcharge concerned, but

(b)it shall not affect the exercise by the rent owner of any right or remedy for the recovery of any rent which accrues before the date on which it was issued.

(4)Where a payment is made into court for the purposes of section 9 above, the sum concerned shall—

(a)if it does not exceed the amount for the time being mentioned in section 39(2) of the County Courts Act 1959 (general jurisdiction in actions for recovery of debts), be paid into the county court, and

(b)in any other case, be paid into the High Court.

(5)Any person who, in notifying the Secretary of State under section 9(2) above, makes a statement which he knows to be false in a material particular, or recklessly makes any statement which is so false, shall be guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction by a fine not exceeding £1,000.
