Renting in a retirement development can be a great financial option for retirees – freeing up capital in a home to spend enjoying the next chapter in their lives. Retirement rentals brand My Future Living is now offering an extra incentive with their ‘one month rent free’ offer on selected properties.
The offer is valid on reservations made on four properties in Warwick, Woking, Sedgefield and Kendal from 18 October 2021. These properties are for over 55s who want to live independently in a friendly and sociable retirement community. The monthly rent includes services and maintenance.
The first property is a lovely one bedroom apartment in Kent Court in Kendal, a vibrant and pretty market town in the Lake District. The apartment is available on a long term assured tenancy, as well as a short term tenancy with the monthly rent starting at £625 per month.
There is a first floor, one bedroom apartment overlooking picturesque gardens at a retirement development called Homebryth House in Sedgefield in County Durham. This apartment is available on a long term assured tenancy, as well as a short term tenancy with the monthly rent also starting at £625 per month.
Or there is a recently decorated with new carpets throughout one bedroom apartment at Montgomery House in Warwick, which is available on a long term assured tenancy, as well as a short term tenancy with the monthly rent starting at £815 per month.
Finally, there is a one bedroom, dual aspect retirement apartment situated on the first floor in Homeworth House in Woking with views over gardens. This is available on a long term assured tenancy, as well as a short term tenancy with the monthly rent starting at £925 per month.
As well as financial benefits, there are also safety and social benefits from living in a retirement development. Many My Future Living apartments have an emergency Careline cord or button, plus an onsite development manager on site during the day which people find really reassuring.
Most developments have communal areas, such as lounges and gardens where people can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee together, plus events, activities and outings are often organised which people can join in with if they wish.
Two residents making the most of living in a sociable retirement development are Jean (76) and John Wray (91). The couple have been married for over 40 years and decided to move from North London to Seaford in East Sussex four years ago for a quieter way of life and to be close to the sea.
John and Jean, previously from Harrow, North London rent a two-bedroom apartment at retirement development Homeshore House on an assured tenancy and say that renting in retirement is the best decision they’ve ever made.
Jean says: “It was a great decision to move and now every day we enjoy stress-free living. We used to own a lovely house but maintaining it was getting harder. We also wanted to free up some money so we could help our son with a deposit for his own place. We now have a worry-free life and if something needs fixing its sorted very quickly with no stress to us.”
Jean thrives on the social aspects of retirement life. She particularly enjoys helping to organise social events for residents in the development including bingo evenings, garden centre visits, pub lunches and golden oldies film afternoons.
Jean adds: “I love being part of the community and helping get those who want to socialise to get out and about. We also have a communal greenhouse where we grow and share all our produce with each other. It’s a lovely way to get out, keep busy and meet new people.”
