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 a 3 bed house to a 2 bed apartment could save approximately £1,300* 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 and Doreen Pitt, Lewis Carroll Lodge, Cheltenham

Sachs Lodge raises over £500 for RNLI

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.


June Wakeling

“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!”
