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

Jean Knight

“This is such a lovely place to live. Everyone is so helpful, the move was easy and any problems sorted out. There are many events and things to do, I have made many friends and I am so, so thankful I moved here.”

Dennis Knowles

“We chose a one bedroom apartment overlooking the beautiful gardens and Jo organised everything with effortless ease and no stress on us. The Lodge Manager Gill was equally professional and so helpful. The whole process took about 8 or 9 weeks from start to finish and we moved in on 10th September. It could not have gone any better!”
