It's all about creating a safe and secure environment in which you can be as independent as you like, either socialising in the homeowners’ lounge or enjoying peace and quiet in your own apartment.

Designed with you in mind

Featuring spacious lounges, extra storage, ensuite facilities and your own outside space in the form of a balcony or patio at selected developments, our properties are designed to make day-to-day living easier. Inside each apartment you’ll notice that the ovens and plug sockets are raised to waist height, so there’s no need to bend or lift and there's slip resistant flooring in the bathroom, and lever taps for easier operation.

If you've got a mobility scooter there's a secure area to charge it*. Security comes as standard, giving you added peace of mind with smoke detectors, intruder alarm, emergency call system, secure lockable doors and windows as well as a camera entry system linked to your TV. Built to the Lifetime Homes Standard**, we believe you’ll be thrilled by the quality of your new Retirement Living apartment.

*Subject to availability. **Lifetime Homes Standard is a set of 16 criteria that provide a model for building accessible and adaptable homes.

Service charges and property management

Property management and maintenance are important parts of our customer service to you. Created in 2010, McCarthy & Stone Management Services manage our developments and provide an excellent, efficient and cost effective service. Your monthly service charge covers the cost of running the Retirement Living development. What it covers includes:

  • The House Manager – there to manage the day-to-day running of the development, and is on hand in case of emergencies during office hours
  • 24 hour emergency call centre – a round the clock call response and monitoring service that provides reassurance and supports the role of the House Manager
  • Water and sewerage rates
  • Management and maintenance of the building

Accreditation

We are delighted that McCarthy & Stone Management Services has achieved accreditation to ARMA-Q, the national regulatory regime for residential leasehold managing agents that came into force in January 2015. Accreditation shows that our Management Services Team are at the leading edge of best practice in property management. ARMA-Q recognises that our homeowners are guaranteed a number of safeguards including higher professional standards and levels of customer care, a transparent and open service and access to an independent regulatory panel.

To achieve accreditation, our Management Services Team have had to demonstrate compliance with over 160 rigorous industry standards. ARMA-Q is being introduced by the estate management industry’s trade body, the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) and accreditation is voluntary.
