What is freehold debt?

Charges payable on freehold property can be wide-ranging and can fall under many headings such as service charges, estate rentcharges and estate management charges. Often, these will relate to the maintenance of communal areas on the freehold estate such as gardens, refuse areas, sewage pumps and street lighting. Estate rentcharges are usually imposed at the time a property is sold to provide the seller with a regular income, often in return for the buyer being able to develop the land.
