Thinking about purchasing a retirement property?


Thinking about purchasing a retirement property?

Are you looking to downsize and maybe want a little more support? Here at Next Home we might have the answer for you!

When you’re considering downsizing or moving on from your family home it can be a difficult decision to make – there are lots of options.

Typically, retirement homes are enclaves of houses or flats that tend to have an age limit e.g. 55+

Most retirement properties are covered by scheme management which means that maintenance of the grounds and communal areas e.g. lifts, corridors, communal lounge are taken care of by a company. Less stress for you!

The level of support here can vary from site to site but, normally the scheme manager/warden will cover a range of admin duties and they will have a team of support staff there in case of emergencies – although an emergency cord is the main way for residents to gain emergency assistance – but you have peace of mind knowing it is there.

The market leading company McCarthy & Stone have built specialised retirement sites throughout Scotland! Locally there are sites in Perth, Blairgowrie and Anstruther! McCarthy and Stone properties are New Build so that means that they come with a NHBC 10 year guarantee which means that if certain structural problems occur you may be covered – that certainly gives you further peace of mind!
