Service charge (Applies when the main building opens)
£79 per week
All residents pay a contribution to the running costs of the facilities, support services and maintenance of the building and grounds which is known as the ‘service charge’. The service charge is divided into a number of components detailed below. The service charge account is raised in advance and is split equally between all of the houses/apartments.
Component Elements of the Service Charge:
The Management Team
The Estate Services Manager, and support teams are responsible for the day to day running of Hurst Place and all its amenities. They ensure that all aspects of Hurst Place are constantly monitored and that the well-being of all residents is maintained.
A small management fee covers the costs of the services provided to the houses/apartments centrally by Anchor. The services provided include HR, IT, finance, anchorcall and customer service centre.
Gardens and Grounds
Anchor will organise gardener(s) to tend them and also look after the paths and walkways to make sure they are free of trip hazards.
Communal Areas, Electricity, Gas and Water
The heating, lighting and use of water in the communal areas and gardens.
24-Hour On-call Response*
Your house/apartment is equipped with an emergency call system which will result in an on-call member of the team coming directly to your assistance, in an emergency. During times when there is no Anchor presence on site the calls are directed to Anchorcall (Anchor’s 24-hour customer centre).
There is a handyperson on site who is qualified to undertake small repairs and provide fire alarm/equipment checks within Hurst Place. In addition you can use the handyman for help with small jobs in your home, at an additional charge, quotes can be obtained from the estate team.
Telephone, Television and Wi-Fi*
You will be provided with a hotel style telephone in your house/apartment. Internal calls are free, you will be billed for external calls. You do have an option to go directly with your own choice of phone provider (line rental will apply). There will be Wi-Fi in the communal areas within Hurst Place for you to access, for free. If you would like Wi-Fi in your house/apartment then you can make arrangements to purchase this directly with a provider of your choice. For TV – we will provide standard Freeview channels and the property is wired for Sky Plus. If you wish to subscribe to Sky Plus you can make arrangements to do this directly with the provider. It is the customers responsibility to ensure you have a valid TV licence, if required.
Insurance, Maintenance and Repair Contracts
We arrange for any external maintenance to your house/apartment and its facilities, and provide insurance for all the buildings. Customers need to make their own arrangements for contents insurance. The service charge also includes a regular window cleaning service. Repair and service contracts for lifts, central kitchen equipment and other plant and equipment are in place and all necessary checks are carried out as required to comply with manufacturer’s recommendations and legislative requirements. The communal areas are inspected by the handyperson to make sure that all lights and equipment are working correctly. They also arrange for PAT (portable appliance test) for all communal electrical equipment. Please note as an owner you will be responsible for the internal maintenance and redecoration of your house/apartment and for home contents insurance.
There are a number of car parking spaces available at Hurst Place and can be licenced for £500 per year. The licence is renewable every 12 months. One space can only be licenced per house/apartment. A number of restrictions apply, please speak to a member of the sales team.
Legal and administration fee for resale
£1020 incl. VAT
This covers the cost of dealing with the resale of a property and the associated legal aspects. There may be other costs associated with additional solicitor enquiries that you will be made aware of when applicable.
Deferred sinking fund contribution
3% of the market value
The sinking fund is a fund which we will build up over time and which will be available to meet the cost of major repairs and refurbishment works which are not covered by the monthly service charge. You should note that the amount in the sinking fund may vary from time to time and we can give no guarantee that there will be sufficient funds in the sinking fund to meet all of the costs of any work which may need to be done. Where there are not sufficient funds in the sinking fund the difference will be collected as an addition to the service charge. A payment of 3% of the value of the property will be paid at the point of sale, as a contribution to the sinking fund. This percentage will be the higher of either the open market value or the premium of the property at the point of sale. e.g. If you sell your property for £400,000 x 3% = £12,000 would be owed to Anchor at point of sale.
