Do I pay rent?

Residents are not charged rent as they are not tenants and do not have security of tenure. Instead, residents are charged a weekly maintenance contribution which covers the maintenance of the almshouses. Weekly maintenance contribution is collected monthly via direct debit.

What does the weekly maintenance contribution cover?

  • Maintenance
  • Lighting in communal areas
  • External decorations
  • Communal gardening

Residents are responsible for their own domestic bills – telephone, council tax, electricity and general living expenses.
