Try Before You Buy

Helping you with a big decision.

Helping you with a big decisionMoving home is a big decision. Many of our residents are initially uncertain whether a move to a care village is the right decision. This might be because it will entail moving to a new area perhaps to be nearer to a son or daughter.

Some residents having viewed one of our properties are keen to move in immediately. However the many frustrating delays which can occur before monies are released from the sale of their existing property may mean that it is several months before they can complete their purchase.

Our 'Try Before you Buy' scheme offers you the opportunity to rent an apartment before taking the final step of purchasing. You can rent for a period of up to 6 months. During this period the rental can be turned into a purchase.

Provided the purchase completes within an agreed timescale, we will refund half the rent already paid (less service charge, ground rent and any other costs applicable) and set this against the purchase price. This gives those who need a little breathing space before they make a decision, the chance to settle in, get to know their neighbours and use the social, leisure and support facilities that are available.

For those who think a shorter period may help them decide, an additional option is to stay for a few days in one of our comfortable guest suites (subject to availability).
