One in four households in Britain are renting privately, and the choice to rent in retirement offers substantial benefits over owning your home, including cost, simplicity, flexibility and security. Highpoint Senior Living meets the need for a high quality rented home in retirement, that still feels secure in the long term.
All of your main costs are covered within the rent, including service charges, ground rents, internal and external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, parking (where applicable) and security.
Highpoint Senior Living apartments are substantially less expensive than the rental options offered by the bigger operators like McCarthy & Stone and Churchill, without sacrificing on quality. And unlike many of our competitors, our retirement complexes are located in town centres close to everything you need, so no big taxi fares to factor in either.
No unexpected repairs and maintenance to deal with. On site wardens are there to take care of the day to day running of the retirement complex, and your Highpoint Senior Living representative is available by phone for anything else.
With peace of mind to stay in your apartment as long as you wish, you can make yourself a home safe in the knowledge that your landlord isn’t looking to sell up in the future. When renting with Highpoint Senior Living you can rest assured that your home will be yours for as long as you want it.
Should you wish to move on, to be closer to family for example, it’s much easier with a rented property. Simply let us know, and you can leave the property after the notice period is complete. No sales process to manage, buyers to negotiate with or estate agent and legal fees to pay.
Moving into a Highpoint Senior Living rental apartment allows you to release the equity in your main home to use as you please and when it it suits you. Supplement your retirement income, fund holidays, pass on to your children to pay for home deposits or for grandchildren’s school fees, or simply save for a rainy day. Releasing equity from your main home ahead of time can also help minimise future tax bills and potential residential care costs.
Retirement properties can be expensive to buy and difficult to sell. After buying, the owner is liable for substantial service charges and ground rents, and sellers of retirement properties are often forced to accept values far below what they originally paid for their home. There are usually hefty fees to pay to freeholders, on top of the usual property buying and selling costs. All of these costs can be avoided through renting your retirement home through Highpoint Senior Living.
