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

Joan Goozee
Beck Lodge, Park Gate

“It was my son’s idea for me to come and look at the apartments here. I liked them straight away and now I’ve moved in I love it here. I’m settling in well and much prefer it to Croydon! My grandchildren and great-grandchildren are all nearby, and I have a beautiful view to look out on every day from my balcony.”

Maddy Dougal
Beck Lodge, Park Gate

“I had a specialist downsizing adviser who was absolutely fantastic. She put together a plan for the removal men of exactly where everything would need to go and they followed it to the letter, it was spot on! I also used Churchill’s Home Exchange service which was great as it meant I didn’t have the hassle of selling my old bungalow on the open market.”
