Leasehold Information

This property is Leasehold. We are advised by our Vendor client the property was constructed in 2009, offered on a 125 year Lease at that time and therefore there are approximately 116 years remaining on the Lease.

Service Charge & Living Costs

Ground rent of £255.00 is paid half yearly and a service charge of £612.00 per calendar month is payable by all residents at Townsend Court to Peverel Management Services. It covers the costs of items such as staff costs, emergency call system, external maintenance and redecoration of communal areas within the building, gardening and building insurance.

Contingency Fee

The leases and deeds of conditions of the apartments require the homeowners (sellers) to pay a service charge contingency fund contribution of 1% of the sale price or, where it is not a sale, the open market value, on certain transactions. These contributions supplement the service charge contingency fund which in turn has the benefit of reducing the annual service charge contingency fund contribution.
