Our management team takes great pride in providing a very high standard of service including checking on all 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 like.

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:
The two most important points to remember about the Communal Facilities Fee (CFF) are, firstly, you pay nothing now and, secondly, it is designed to help maintain the continued high standard of the development and ensure that each apartment, if sold, has the opportunity to achieve best value within the housing market.
The CFF is based on the principle of “enjoy today, pay in the future” and monies are only deducted when you sell your property.
One of the many appeals of an Adlington Retirement Living development is the extensive communal facilities enjoyed by all our homeowners. Our table service restaurant, lounge, guest suite, hairdressing salon and therapy rooms are very popular and provide a focal point for the sense of community and well-being appreciated by our homeowners and their families. Outdoors our landscaped gardens offer a peaceful space to enjoy the fresh air, relax or chat with friends. These facilities, plus those that support our on-site management team such as the office, kitchen, and staff rooms, ensure an independent lifestyle for our homeowners.
The CFF only applies when you sell your apartment so there are no upfront or annual fees to worry about.
The CFF is simply calculated as 2% per annum of the re-sale price of your apartment when it is sold. This fee is payable for each year or part year of occupation and is capped at 10 years.
As well as maintaining high standards for all our homeowners to enjoy daily, the CFF also covers longer term capital works. Specific benefits include:
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.
“Since we moved here, we can walk straight out onto the canal footpath and it’s flat. We walked to one of our daughters’ houses the other day. It took us about 25 minutes along the canal towards Bollington. Two of our daughters are just a few minutes’ walk away and it’s nice that we can walk to them or they can come to us.
The garden’s beautiful too. We had a lovely garden and I will miss it, but I also knew that when this year came, I probably couldn’t go on doing it.”
