Understanding the charges

Service and Well-being Charge

All residents living at The Bridges, Macclesfield 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. These charges are to provide services such as;

  • The provision of a daily restaurant service which enables homeowners to enjoy a delicious three course meal at exceptionally good value
  • Communal cleaning and maintenance
  • One hour of domestic help each week
  • External window cleaning
  • Water usage, buildings insurance and estate management
  • 24-hour support everyday, 365 days a year, in case of any emergency, working in tandem with a discreet emergency call system installed in each apartment

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.

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.

Weekly Service and Well-being Charges at Macclesfield are;

  • 1 bedroom – approximately £138
  • 2 bedroom – approximately £154
  • 3 bedroom – approximately £169

It is important to point out that payment of the Service and Well-being 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.

Individual Responsibilities

As you would expect in your own home other household expenditures will remain as the Homeowner’s responsibility. These typically include:

  • Council tax
  • Electricity – which is metered per apartment
  • Contents insurance
  • Telephone line rental and broadband (where applicable)
  • TV licence (where applicable)

Communal Facilities Fee

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, a refurbishment fund when you choose to sell your apartment and our re-sale service. Specific benefits include:

  • A 0.25% contribution to a Building Reserve Fund for long term major capital repairs thereby ensuring that the development is always kept up to the same standard as when you purchased your apartment.
  • Refurbishment service up to the value of £2,000 is included in the CFF to ensure your apartment achieves the best possible re-sale value. This could be helping to declutter your apartment prior to an Estate Agent taking photos, or redecoration before the apartment is sold, carpet cleaning, or repair/replace any damaged fixtures. We will work with you to agree the areas to focus on.
  • An Estate Agency type re-sale service is included in the CFF, equivalent to 1% of the market value of your apartment, to produce marketing materials and help manage viewings, negotiations, and overall support, or as a contribution towards Estate Agent fees.

Care Charges

Additional 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.

  • Hourly rate is approximately £21.00.
  • The charge is doubled where two carers are required

*Current offers

6-months free Service & Well-being Charge*

*Offer available on all new reservations taken before 31st May 2021.

No Stamp Duty to pay

Now could be the perfect time to make a move with The Chancellor granting a temporary ‘holiday’ on stamp duty – with no duty to pay on all properties up to the value of £500,000 from now until the end of June 2021.

Hear from our Homeowners

The Bridges Macclesfield Homeowners

“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.”
