Life at The Forge
If you are over 55 years old and wanting to own a retirement property without the burden of maintenance and repairs, Anchor-managed properties may be the answer. Anchor estates are all very different. They range from a small cul–de-sac of six bungalows to a large estate of 86 apartments. Most are set in pleasant landscaped settings.
At each estate there will be an estate manager who can act as the first point of contact for any queries that residents may have and offer help to access any local services.
All Anchor estates offer a 24-hour alarm call service in private and shared areas. Every estate will have either a resident or visiting manager who provides help, advice and co-ordinates any services provided.
In addition to each individual private property, all Anchor estates offer some shared facilities, available for the use and enjoyment of all the residents, and managed and maintained by Anchor.
Shared facilities vary from one estate to the next. Anchorestates offer some or all of the following:
- a guest suite for visitors
- a maintained communal lounge for social activities and events
- residents’ and visitors’ parking
- lifts where appropriate in shared buildings of two or more floors
- maintained gardens for all residents to enjoy
- a conservatory shared by all residents
- a shared laundry which saves space in residents' kitchens
Anchor endeavour to be completely transparent about all our charges and fees. Below is indicative pricing to act as a guide to the costs at The Forge, Handcross. For further information please contact us.

What is included in leasehold charges?
The services provided by our estate managers include: liaising with residents and prospective residents; making sure the estate is safe, secure and welcoming; maintaining the building and managing the estate. The costs for these services, carried out by our professional staff, are included in the monthly service charge.
All this has the added advantage of protecting property values for all residents.
The estate manager is available to discuss financial issues related to the running of the estate. The audited accounts will be sent to you by post every year. Actual expenditure is monitored against the annual budget throughout the year and service charges are reviewed annually.
Service charges are put together in accordance with the terms of your lease. They cover the costs associated with the upkeep of the estate, including insurance of the building and maintenance of communal areas.
Our retirement properties have a real community feel where people interact with their neighbours, families and friends, continuing to do all the things they love. Many of our leasehold housing developments organise a wide range of activities and events tailored to the interests of the people living in them.
