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.

Testimonials

Yvonne Gee

“I love the garden and look forward to the summer when I can sit out on the grass. This was a big attraction when I was looking for a place. It has been lovely to know there are other folk around you and we can meet up for coffee and tea and even hot lunches, courtesy of our wonderful Lodge Manager. We have so much going on – my friends ask me when I am free”

Mr Dent & Milo

“I was very pleased to hear that pets are allowed at the Lodge, as there’s no way I would have moved without Milo. He loves it here too, and we’re in the ideal location for walks in the park or along the high street. He’s 13 years old so we don’t go too far these days to save his legs – and mine! It’s great to be right in the heart of town close to everything we need.”

Harriet Garfitt

“It’s pretty big for a one bedroom apartment, with a huge bedroom which doubles as a study. I have masses of storage space too, a big kitchen and a big bathroom. My apartment faces southwest over our glorious garden, and there is natural light at both ends of my hallway. There’s also a staircase opposite my front door, which is a big plus, so I can take the stairs and rarely need to use the lift and hallways.”

Alan Little

Now that I’m here too I feel very settled and everyone is very nice and helpful. My apartment is all brand new, it’s a one bedroom but has plenty of room, there is lots of cupboard space in the kitchen and everything’s perfect for me.
