How a new Churchill apartment could help reduce your costs:

Now is the time to take stock and think about how much time and money you have spent over the past year on house maintenance. If the answer is far too much, then a lifestyle with fewer maintenance worries and a service charge that’s easy to budget for could be the answer to saving money and enjoying more of your time on the things you love.

There are many misconceptions about service charges and many of our 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.

Our Service Charge typically covers the cost of providing a Lodge Manager, security systems and call monitoring, external maintenance of the building and grounds, building insurance, heating, lighting and provision of all of the furnishings for the Owners’ Lounge and communal areas – all essential ingredients of the independent lifestyle our developments provide.

We always aim to keep the service charge cost as low as possible, and we provide a full budget breakdown for all our Owners to consider, consulting with them on this every 6 months.

“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

We appreciate everyone’s household costs will differ which is why we encourage Customers to complete a ‘Savings Calculator’ with one of our Sales Executives. This calculator is designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of the value in our easy to budget Service Charge.

“I’ve been very busy getting to know everyone and getting involved in the local community. I’m on the Highcliffe in Bloom committee, I help run an after school club with the local church, and I’m helping the local Rotary Club. I enjoy a very busy lifestyle and it’s been wonderful making new friends here at Rothesay Lodge and in my new neighbourhood in general.”

Nottinghamshire is probably best known for the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men. However, the 'Queen of the Midlands' is also the hometown of famous poet Lord Byron and author D. H. Lawrence. With the stunning Sherwood Forest and the deer parks, there's plenty of opportunity for countryside walks. If history is your passion, Wollaton Hall and Newstead Abbey have exhibitions and offer tours throughout the year, while Green's Mill and Science Centre is also a popular hotspot.
