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

Testimonials

Mr & Mrs Rogers

“We’re so glad we moved into Retirement Living when we did. Even though we both still work we’re hoping we’ve got many years to enjoy our life here together, and when we do retire in two to three years, we’ve got plenty to keep us busy. We live very close to a gym that I love to go to, and we’re also in a great location for the Shirley retail parks and Solihull town centre for shopping.”
