Our range of spacious apartments are designed to offer flexibility to suit everyone. We also focus on the little things that make a big difference – from how a home feels, such as natural light, a user-friendly layout, a private patio or balcony – to smart, space-saving storage.
Our apartments offer a range of features and fittings to guarantee years of hassle-free living. A typical example would include:
All homeowners living at The Cottons, Ramsbottom will contribute to a Service and Well-being Charge. The high level of care, support and services on offer to enhance quality and enjoyment of life are what make Adlington different. This charge is to provide services such as;
Our own Management team, Adlington Management Services (AMS) take great pride in providing a high standard of service including checking on our homeowners well-being and liaising with family and professionals if necessary. They consult with homeowners on all aspects of the operations of the development and facilitate numerous social events and activities that can be participated in as much, or as little, as you’d like.
You no longer have to take into consideration the ongoing costs of upkeep and maintenance of your current property, grounds and gardens. As well as owning a modern stylish apartment built to high specification that is well insulated and cost effective to heat.
We have a vested interest in making sure that our buildings and grounds are always fully maintained and that the apartments retain their value so inheritance is maximised.
2023/24 approximate weekly Service and Well-being Charges at Ramsbottom are;
The Service and Well-being Charge is reviewed annually. It is important to point out that payment of the service charge has to continue even if the apartment is vacant, as it is apportioned between all homeowners in order to maintain the high standard of service.
As you would expect in your own home other household expenditures will remain as the homeowner’s responsibility. These typically include:
Adlington developments provide extensive communal facilities, such as the lounge, restaurant and commercial kitchen, coffee lounge hairdressing salon, guest suite, staff rooms, management offices and the mobility scooter and bicycle store, as well as landscaped gardens and grounds. It is these facilities along with the 24-hour on-site support which makes your new home likely to be suitable for your whole life, without the need to move to a care home. This is a major benefit to well-being, peace of mind and independence and, if it avoids care home fees, also has considerable financial advantages. You will only purchase your own apartment, so in order to recoup the considerable costs of these extensive facilities we levy an annual Ground Rent.
Annual Ground Rent charges 2024:
The Ground Rent is due annually from 1st January and will be reviewed every year in line with the Retail Price Index.
While the day to day maintenance of the buildings and facilities is covered by the Service and Well-being Charge, which is kept as low as possible to leave homeowners with maximum disposable income, major capital costs and refurbishment are not included.
It is important that maintenance is kept to the highest standards for all to enjoy, and to cover any major works, a fee of 0.25% of your sale price for each year, or part-year, of occupation will be levied when you sell on your apartment. A contribution to the Building Reserve Fund is also collected through the Service and Well-being Charge.
The Building Reserve Fund will build up over time so that money is available to pay for capital costs as they occur e.g replacement lifts, restaurant kitchen equipment, the buildings roof and car park etc. This means that the development is always kept up to the same standard as when you purchased your apartment.
As an example, if a property that has been owned for 9 years and 7 months is sold for £300,000, the fee payable will be £7,500 (Sale price x 0.25% x years or part-years owned).
An up-to-date Fund balance is available on request.
Additional personal tailored care packages can be designed to suit your individual requirements. All care packages are drawn up in consultation with you, based upon a careful assessment of your needs and are regularly reviewed. Short term illness and recuperation packages can be tailored to individual requirements where required. Costs are based on the level of need per person, and will be provided once confirmed.
