The Rent Charge

When Enfield Island Village was developed from the former Royal Small Arms factory a Deed of Rent Charge was created between all property owners and EIVT (formerly the Enfield Island Village Residents Association).  Click here to view the Rent charge

The deed gives EIVT the authority to levy a rent charge on the Island’s residents and use the money collected to manage the common areas of the Island that are not adopted by the local authority.

The deed gives the residents a real power to manage and maintain the common areas and ensure that the Island is kept clean and tidy and efficiently run the benefit of all residents.
