The Coronavirus situation continues to change rapidly, and we are adapting the ways in which we work to protect our homeowners and our colleagues. We appreciate these are worrying times for our homeowners, their families, friends and communities across the country.
With this in mind, we have compiled a set of frequently asked questions that outline the key measures we have put in place in the last few weeks.
If you live in a McCarthy Stone development and your question is not answered below, please reach out to your House or Estate Manager, who can provide any additional guidance and support you may need.
We would like to thank all our homeowners and their families for their cooperation and resilience. The entire team at McCarthy Stone is dedicated to supporting our communities during this time.
"The Smooth Move service was so good, all we had to do was walk out the house, they did everything…I was delighted with the move. I’d recommend it to everyone. Everyone here is so happy. The apartment is so light and spacious with its two bedrooms and it’s three minutes from Lichfield town centre. My daughter’s mother in law came to look around my apartment and now she wants one! … There are no downsides, I can’t quite believe I’m here. I love it."
"Everything was in lockdown at the time, the schools were shut, no one was going out and I didn’t really feel like it made the move any more difficult. McCarthy Stone’s […] approach is sensible, straightforward and cautious."
I wasn’t worried about the pandemic at all, I took precautions, everyone else took precautions and wore masks etc. The actual move was easy… The community is very nice and really friendly. I’ve got to know a lot of names already and we have WhatsApp chats…I would definitely recommend it. I am much less isolated than I was in my old home … I sleep so soundly now. It’s absolutely safe and secure. It’s very nice. Very nice.
A big thank you for all your efforts during these trying times. Our lunches have been super, I know its not the same as having lunch with company but it's been brilliant to have hot meals delivered to us all. I know it's as difficult for you as it is for all of us, but we really appreciate all your efforts, so once again THANK YOU!
