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

Life in Maidstone

Kent’s county town lies at the heart of the Garden of England. Maidstone has the benefit of being close to orchards and hop gardens that surround romantic villages and must-see heritage sites.

  • This lush landscape is home to the captivating Leeds Castle, where you can discover the stories of six English queens, an Anglo-American heiress and one-time resident Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII’s first wife.
  • In Maidstone itself, the stables of the 14th Century Archbishop’s Palace house one of the town’s hidden gems, while the Kentish Lady or Allington Belle will take you on a scenic River Medway cruise through the Maidstone Millennium River Park to Kent where oast houses, historic homes, farm animals and tractor rides provide a lively insight into Kent’s rural past.
  • Several independent shops, a hairdresser, pharmacy and optician are all within walking distance, making this development ideally located. King’s Lodge is a gated development, offering that additional element of security.
