Buying an apartment

Assignment Fee Lease

When you purchase a property within Chantry Court Village you will be purchasing a long lease (999 years). This form of tenure allows for the ongoing relationship between residents and the landlord.

When you come to sell the property you can either sell via Chantry Court or on the open market. The company charges an Assignment Fee of 10% (less in the early years). This assignment fee allows the properties to be sold at a reasonable price and ensures the company's commitment to the operation of the village in the longer term.

Full details of these options are set out in our lease documentation:

  • we require you to take legal advice
  • we encourage discussions with your family
  • we're happy to talk through any issues
  • a full legal pack is available on request
