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

Testimonials

Mr & Mrs Tyrie
Harington Lodge, Chichester

“I did the sums on how much I currently spend on maintenance and household bills, and compared it with the service charge and ground rent on our new apartment. I worked out that with everything Churchill includes, I’ll be getting a lot more for roughly the same price, so when you do the sums it’s a no brainer.”

Mr & Mrs Metcalfe
Harington Lodge, Chichester

“We moved here in 2019 and were delighted to find a large garden, which was unexpected so close to the city centre. We had always enjoyed gardening wherever we had lived, and were delighted to have the opportunity to tend this one. The garden here was well planted with hardy shades of green, but we wanted to add a bit of colour. We have been working towards a greater variety of plants by adding good old-fashioned classics such as peonies, lupins, delphiniums, verbenas, roses and digitalis.”
