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

Testimonials

Celia Forsberg
Rothesay Lodge, Highcliffe-on-Sea

“I’ve been very busy getting to know everyone and getting involved in the local community. I’m on the Highcliffe in Bloom committee, I help run an after school club with the local church, and I’m helping the local Rotary Club. I enjoy a very busy lifestyle and it’s been wonderful making new friends here at Rothesay Lodge and in my new neighbourhood in general.”

Mary South
Rothesay Lodge, Highcliffe-on-Sea

“I enjoy sitting in the Owners’ Lounge and having a cup of tea with my new friends, and I have made a close friend with one of the Owners in particular. We have different events going on, such as a welcoming cheese and wine afternoon, a weekly coffee morning and sometimes just some nice evening drinks, and we are also arranging a Chinese evening. All I can say is Churchill does exactly what it says it will, and I can’t recommend it enough. I love telling people where I live, and telling them how great Churchill is.”
