Service charges explained…

We understand that the ongoing cost of running your new apartment is an important factor to consider when deciding to purchase a Churchill apartment. That’s why a full service charge budget analysis is available for each individual development. Owners are consulted on this annually, and we always aim to keep the cost as low as possible.

Your service charge covers:

  • Cost of providing the Lodge Manager
  • Security systems and call monitoring
  • External maintenance
  • Building insurance
  • Heating
  • Lighting
  • All furnishings for the Owners’ Lounge and communal areas.

With energy costs on the increase, it is worth highlighting that we use thermal efficient materials and effective insulation throughout our developments. We ensure we use energy efficient:

  • Appliances
  • Fixtures
  • Fittings

All of which adds up to a lower carbon footprint and lower energy bills.

To help lower your bills even further, every Churchill development comes with built in renewable energy or heating systems – via either ground/air source heat pumps or solar panel technology. These generate renewable energy or hot water for use throughout the communal areas and individual apartments, improving sustainability, and helps save you money.

Local area

Popular town in Kent

Dartford is a popular town situated on the border of Kent and Greater London, with a long history of industrial and cultural importance and boasts an extensive range of shops, bars and restaurants within the town centre, together with good transport links to both Bluewater and Lakeside Shopping Centres.

  • Dartford has a rich and varied heritage which includes The Manor Gate House, once a 16th Century mansion of Henry VIII. Medieval buildings in the High Street and the Holy Trinity Church, which dates back to the 1000s and contains a 15th Century mural also add to the heritage of Dartford. Here, the body of Henry V lay overnight for a requiem mass before burial at Westminster Abbey.
  • There’s also the Swanscombe Skull Site which is the location for three matching fragments of skull that turned out to be among the oldest human remains ever found in Europe.
  • As well as quick links into central London, the town also benefits from designated areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as Dartford Heath. Scenic locations include the 26-acre Central Park, providing glorious floral displays and walks alongside the Darent riverside and the smaller Hesketh Park, with sport facilities.

Testimonials

Margaret & Brian Hopper
Keyes Lodge, Dartford

“Being in our new apartment makes life much easier, as we don’t have the whole house to look after and keep clean any more. Our brand new apartment is smart and spacious with room for everything we need. Churchill’s ‘Move With Ease’ service helped make sure everything went smoothly with the move, and we’ve now settled in very nicely.”
