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

Jan & Spot
Jefferies Lodge, Eltham

“My daughter lives near to Jefferies Lodge and it was her idea for me to move here so I’d be closer to her and the family as I get older. Of course I couldn’t have moved without Spot, so one of the first things I did was to check whether Churchill would allow me to bring him too, and thankfully the answer was yes. We moved in last summer, it all went very smoothly and our brand new apartment is lovely, I couldn’t wish for anything more.”

Gill Rapley

“My mum used to live a 6-hour drive away, in Cornwall. Now she’s just half a mile from where I live, here in Kent. That means I can meet up with her a lot more often and I don’t have to worry about getting to her quickly in an emergency. It also means we can spend time together relaxing, rather than most of it being taken up with maintenance work in the house or garden. And, because she’s no longer out on a limb, she gets to see more of the rest of the family as well.”
