The properties

Each apartment is carefully finished, bright and spacious, and benefits from private terraces or balconies. Properties have been built to ensure energy efficiency and lower living costs.

Facilities

All residents at the development will benefit from an on-site development management team with concierge facility provided by us, Hanover. As a not-for-profit organisation we put our customers first and are here for the long term. This means you can rely on our advice and services, and our continuing commitment to high standards of maintenance and quality in managing your property.

Eligibility criteria

Applicants must be 55 or over. Any applicant’s total household income should be no more than £90,000 per annum for one and two bedroom homes.

Prices

The age-restricted (55 and over) properties are set at either a 75% share or 50% share to purchase. No rent is payable on 25% of the property that Hanover retains: it is simply a way to make the property more affordable. If purchasing a 50% share, rent would be payable on the additional unowned 25%. Prices for a one bedroom start at £222,500 for a 50% share and a two bedroom at £287,500 for a 50% share.

Costs

Service charges are payable monthly and are based on the square footage of your property. These are approximately £150 for a one bedroom apartment and £200 for a two bedroom apartment. Ground rent is payable annually and is set at £350 for a one bedroom and £500 for a two bedroom.
