Service Charges

All residents living at The Sailings, Southport will contribute to Service and Well-being Charges. 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 freshly prepared meal at exceptionally good value. Two courses from £4 per person, and three courses from £5.25 per person
  • Communal cleaning and maintenance
  • External window cleaning
  • Water usage, buildings insurance and estate management
  • They also enable our management organisation to have someone on site 24-hours every day in case of any emergency, working in tandem with a discreet emergency call system installed in each apartment

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 liasing 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 it is also well insulated and cost effective to heat.

We have a vested interest in making sure that out buildings and grounds are always fully maintained and that the apartments retain their value so inheritance is maximised.

Monthly Service Charges at Southport are estimated to be;

  • 1 bedroom – approximately £630
  • 2 bedroom – approximately £665
  • 3 bedroom – approximately £700

Payment of the Service and Well-being Charge has to continue even if the apartment is vacant, as it is proportioned between all Homeowners in order to maintain the high standard of service.

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, including short term illness and recuperation packages.  Costs are based on the level of need per person and will be charged from £20 per hour.

  • Hourly rate to be confirmed
  • The charge is doubled where two carers are required

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)

Ground Rent

Adlington developments provide extensive communal facilities, such as the residents’ 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 fees:

  • 1 bedroom – £400
  • 2 bedroom – £500
  • 3 bedroom – £600

The Ground Rent is due annually from 1st January and will be reviewed every year in line with the Retail Price Index.

In addition, to give Homeowners maximum flexibility, we have incorporated into our lease the option for you to buy out your Ground Rent at any time by giving the legal landlord written notice and paying a fee of 40 x the Ground Rent at the time of the service of the notice which will take effect from the 1st January for the following year. For every year after that for the duration of the lease the rent will be “a peppercorn” (i.e. zero pounds).

If you wish to exercise this right upon your initial purchase, please let us and your solicitors know, and we can accommodate this from the outset for the cost of 40 x the initial Ground Rent set for your home. (e.g. to buy out the Ground Rent at the outset for a one bedroomed home it would cost 40 x £400 = £16,000)

Building Reserve Fund

It is important that maintenance is kept to the highest standards for all to enjoy and to cover any major works, a fee of 1/4 % of your sale price for each year, or part year, of occupation will be levied when you sell on your apartment.

The Building Reserve Fund will build up over time so that money is available to pay for capital costs as they occur, such as replacement lifts, restaurant kitchen equipment, the building roof and car park. This ensures the development is maintained to the same standard as when you purchased.
