The building, communal areas, grounds, gardens, facilities and services are maintained to the very highest standards and the cost of providing these is recovered through a service charge.
The service charge cost at Mill View for 2022/23 is £491.37 per month per property and runs from 1st April. In order to facilitate the extra care offering, residents are also required to pay our on-site care provider £16.68 per week per apartment. This is a ‘peace of mind’ charge giving residents access to a 24 hour emergency response service.
The cost of all other living expenses and tailored care packages, if required, are your responsibility.
These can typically include Council Tax, telephone/broadband, electricity, gas for underfloor heating, water usage from our communal hot water system (you will be billed directly for this) as well as contents insurance, together with any ongoing maintenance and upkeep relating to the interior of your apartment and the fixtures and fittings therein.
The three main criteria for purchasing are as follows:
Occupants must be aged 55 or over
Your annual household income can be no more than £80,000
You will need to sell any existing property owned before purchasing a home at Mill View.
See examples here based on property value of £365,000. Please note that service charges are variable and may increase.
When an enquiry is made the Housing and Support Manager will contact you and conduct an initial assessment over the telephone to ascertain whether you meet the basic application criteria.
The following checks will be completed before a decision can be made regarding your application:
Whether you have a current care package in place
Whether you have a local connection
Your income sources
Your individual housing needs.
Following these checks, a pre-verification assessment will be carried out by the Housing and Support Manager and an assessment will be carried out by the Care Provider. Once the assessments are completed, suitability can be determined by the Panel (which consists of the Housing and Support Manager, as representative from the Care Team, and a representative from Care Management/Older People’s Team).
Once a decision by the panel is made, an offer, if appropriate, will be given and the Housing and Support Manager will make arrangements with you to agree a move-in date (which includes the signing of the tenancy).
