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

Apartment owners at Churchill Retirement Living’s Sachs Lodge development in Torquay have pulled together to raise over £500 for their local RNLI Torbay Lifeboat charity. Their fundraising throughout the year included a special art exhibition by the Lodge’s resident watercolour specialist Alan Lark, and a weekly tai chi session in the Owners’ Lounge hosted by his wife Liz in return for donations.

Sachs Lodge, Torquay

“I have a ground floor apartment with my own patio looking out onto the woods and straight on down to the sea. I love the sense of air and space, and I’m only a two minute walk from the village shops which is very convenient. It means I can easily get out for a walk every day and keep myself fit!”
