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

Tony & Barbara Brocklebank

“Everyone on the Churchill team has been so helpful throughout the move, we’re very pleased we came here. Our old house was lovely but it had an enormous garden with a very steep slope, and we just didn’t need the hassle of keeping on top of it any longer.”

Mr & Mrs Yendall

“The retirement living lifestyle is great, at times it’s like being on a permanent holiday – I’d recommend it to anyone! We are both very independent and don’t feel that we need any help, but being here is great. Every detail is spot on
