RENT CHARGE on the needed

Hi guys

thanks for any advice you have as my lawyers are useless, all they care is money.

The house I want to buy is freehold, but the land has RENT CHARGE.
I can not find the information if the rent charge (not a ground rent) can go up, if how much it could go up.
Can the owner of the land ask me to give back his land if he wants to sell the land to the developer?
land registry states its perpetual rent charge on land £35 a year but it also says that the land was sold a few times and changed the owners now to the company
