• An Estate Manager service that includes:
- General services, customer enquiries, security monitoring and health and safety checks

In buying an Anchor retirement property you can be confident that you are buying a comfortable, attractive home, built and maintained to the highest standard.
Your Estate Manager will be at hand to act as the first point of contact for any queries and as we plan for major repairs through contributions to a sinking fund, money is always available when it is needed. The contribution, usually deferred until the sale of your property, need not impact on your monthly outgoings.
When choosing a retirement home, Anchor offers you a wide variety of choice across England. Our estates range from quiet cul–de-sacs to large retirement developments, and feature houses, bungalows and apartments.
A number of our retirement properties are also available on a shared ownership basis. Shared ownership, or 'part buy', helps people who cannot or do not want to buy their home outright. A share of the property is bought, and rent paid on the remainder. The share bought varies and depends on the property.
Living in an Anchor-managed retirement home means you can enjoy your retirement while we carry out all the tasks associated with managing and maintaining the property on your behalf.
All of our retirement homes for sale are viewable through local estate agents, however we can of course let you know about the retirement properties for sale in your area. Please contact us so we can help find your new retirement home.
* Please contact us for more details, as services may vary between estates.
