To date, rentcharge payers have had the benefit of a free of charge Government service when seeking to buy-out rentcharges. The formula for redemption is reasonably complex one which proceeds on an assumption of 2.5% yield across the relevant period. DCLG now proposes to cease to provide that service since it says 'the costs associated with the ongoing provision of this service by the Government cannot be justified when compares with the amounts being paid for actual redemption', which average at £156. Given the inherent difficulties and costs involved where parties attempt to redeem a charge by agreement, current payers would be well advised to take advantage of this service before it disappears completely in three months' time.
