Service charges explained…

We understand that the ongoing cost of running your new apartment is an important factor to consider when deciding to purchase a Churchill apartment. That’s why a full service charge budget analysis is available for each individual development. Owners are consulted on this annually, and we always aim to keep the cost as low as possible.

In fact many Owners are pleasantly surprised that the service charges for their apartment frequently work out less than what they were paying, in comparable costs, on their previous property. This is backed up by research from the Housing LIN, who found that downsizing from a 3 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom retirement apartment could save an Owner approximately £1,300* per year. This is a potential saving of around 15% on bills.With energy costs on the increase, it is worth highlighting that we incorporate renewable technologies to supply hot water and heating to reduce electricity bills. We also insulate our developments to a very high standard. This means that the need to turn the heating on is kept to a minimum.

“Living in a Churchill Apartment is absolutely marvellous. The whole building is so nice and warm all the time that we’ve hardly had to use the heating inside our apartment. When we do turn it up a notch or two it’s nice to know we don’t have to worry about the cost or the environmental impact, as it’s all so energy efficient and covered within our annual service charge.”

John and Doreen Pitt, Lewis Carroll Lodge, Cheltenham

Mr & Mrs Richards
Mount’s Bay Lodge, Penzance

“Our new apartment is very warm and cosy, everything is lovely and new, and we have a very nice outlook from our balcony across the bay to St Michael’s Mount. We’ve seen some beautiful sunrises. I got lots of admiring comments when I posted a photo of one on my Facebook page.”

Maureen Coombes
Mount’s Bay Lodge, Penzance

“I lived in a three-bedroom bungalow by myself for several years, and it became too much for me to maintain. Gardening became tough and even though it was all on one-floor, it was more than I could handle – especially with just me living there. That’s why I moved into retirement living. I loved the idea of low-maintenance living and being surrounded by lots of people – it’s the complete opposite of what I had before.
