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, here’s some key Service Charge benefits:

  • Downsizing from an average 3 bedroom house to a retirement apartment could save an average of approximately £2,300* per year
  • A potential saving of around 15% on bills.
  • Renewable technologies to supply hot water and heating to reduce electricity bills.
  • We also insulate our developments to a very high standard.
  • The need to turn the heating on is kept to a minimum.
  • Owners are consulted annually
  • We always aim to keep the cost as low as possible.

“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 Pulford

When I first visited Dutton Lodge, I was concerned that I would not be able to afford one of the apartments. I was told about the Home Exchange scheme, which sounded ideal for me. It took away all my worries about not being able to sell my property as well as the stress of being in a chain and concerned it may collapse! The Home exchange company gave me a guaranteed price, which I was pleased with and it made perfect sense to me to accept it as the Sales Executive highlighted how Churchill could enable the move for me financially.
