Within the UK, Retirement Security was one of the first to establish Independent Retirement Communities and, since its inception in 1983, has continued to be a trail blazer for nearly 40 years.
The company was established to offer affordable homes within a happy and secure environment carefully designed for ease of access, in which owners could enjoy their retirement and thrive in an active supportive community, but where they could also protect and keep control of their hard-earned finances through running their own communities - Communities for owners run by owners. That remains true today in each of Retirement Security's 32 courts across England and Wales.
It is important to note that a significant proportion of the Service Charge relates to items which the prospective purchaser is responsible for in their present home, such as building insurance, building maintenance, gardening, and domestic help. Many purchasers are also eligible for Attendance Allowance at £68 or £101 a week, which is neither means-tested or taxable and advice on this subject is available to anyone making an enquiry.
The lease provides that a transfer premium is payable to Retirement Security on resale of a property. The maximum premium payable is 3% of the sale price depending on the length of time an Owner has lived at the property. Further information is available from the Court Manager.
