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

Local area

Staplehurst is often referred to as a village – indeed, it was voted Kent Village of the Year in 2003, and its village sign still proudly welcomes visitors – but really it’s grown into a small town, situated nine miles south of Maidstone.

  • Staplehurst has a vibrant history, developing along the straight Roman road running from Rochester down through Maidstone to the High Weald’s one-time iron-mining villages.
  • Nearby villages include the picturesque Sissingnhurst and Headcorn, whilst Biddenden and its vineyards are less than ten miles away.
  • London is within easy reach from Staplehurst station. It’s on Ashford’s mainline to Charing Cross and Cannon Street via Tonbridge, and under an hour’s journey – so good news for commuters.
  • The A229 runs all the way to Maidstone via Linton and Loose and connects you to the M20 London bound, with access to the M26, M25 and Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
