The property is leasehold for a term of 125 years from 25th December 1989. The residue of that leasehold interest is available. All the apartments are sold with 80% equity with the 20% share being retained by Curo (formally the Somer Community Housing Trust). The apartments are sold with no chain. Residents have the security of knowing that the freeholder will undertake the management development and be responsible for the maintenance of the grounds, common parts, building insurance, exterior repairs and decoration. The service charge 2022-2023 is £2465.14.

The development is restricted to those persons over 55. It offers independence but with the security offered by the support of a leasehold officer and in their absence, an emergency alarm call system that is directed to a 24 hour emergency control facility.


According to the Valuation Office Agency website, cti.voa.gov.uk the present Council Tax Band for the property is C. Please note that change of ownership is a ‘relevant transaction’ that can lead to the review of the existing council tax banding assessment.

Agents Note

We have been informed by the freeholder (August 2022) that major works are expected to be carried out at Meadow Court over the next 5 years including the replacement of the windows, fire alarm etc, communal areas, heating and wiring and works to the lift(this is not an exhaustive list). Whilst we cannot confirm service charges for future years (as they are calculated annually) 80% of the costs expended will be passed on to the leaseholders. As a guide for the year 2022/23 the estimated charges per flat are currently £3551.67for a one bed unit and £4994.88 for a 2 bed unit. It is anticipated that investment in the building will have a positive impact on the future value of the flats. Please make any further queries with a negotiator who can put you in touch with the freeholder. All tenure and service charges, details should be confirmed with your legal adviser prior to exchange of contracts.

Although these particulars are thought to be materially correct their accuracy cannot be guaranteed and they do not form part of any contract.
