TENURE

We understand (subject to legal verification) that the property is leasehold with 998 years remaining on the lease. This apartment is in the South Wing of Park View with a new lift and, we are informed, has a service charge lower than the other wings plus a substantial sinking fund. Current annual ground rent is £80 and service charge is £2,481.06 per annum. Service charges are capped for the next 3 years at no more than 2.5% or government triple lock. Over the years Park View has been implementing a comprehensive £300,000 preventative maintenance programme which has replaced many major components of the building's fabric including: two new lifts, a driveway, two water mains, sewers, redecoration inside and out. A comprehensive fire system with heat detectors in every apartment and a flood prevention system for each apartment.

It will also shortly be moving from a key based access system to a fob based digital security system on all communal doors.

This investment has lowered maintenance costs, and allied with a substantial sinking fund in South wing and the three year guarantee on service charge rates, has delivered certainty on future maintenance costs and a well financed estate.

DIRECTIONS

From the agents office in Great Malvern proceed down Church Street to the first set of traffic lights and turn right into Grange Road.
