Vendor Comments

We moved into this apartment from Knowle in 2009.

Our aim was to find an apartment that was spacious, had 2 bedrooms including ensuite, family bathroom, large lounge dining room and breakfast kitchen plus garage and parking.We also wanted a top floor for a better outlook and not having people above. We also wished to be close to all amenities.

This accommodation ticked all the boxes and more.

We have lovely neighbours.

A beautiful gated community where the gardens are lovingly cared for. The apartment overlooks a lawned area where in the summer you will find residents sitting and chatting or reading and maybe sipping the occasional glass of wine. It feels very safe and secure.

There is an area for washing your car if you feel inclined to do so.

Compared to other apartment communities in the area the grounds are better than most if not all. 

Although the apartment is Leasehold with 984 years unexpired each tenant owns a share in the Alderham Close Freehold Company Limited so benefits from no ground rent. Queens Court also has its own Management Company which provides for a better service at significantly lower cost when compared to employing an external Management Company.

The apartment is walking distance to all amenities including Touchwood Shopping Centre, Solihull Railway Station, Malvern/Brueton Park, bus services and of course Birmingham International Airport/Railway Station (10 minutes by car or taxi).

Having large windows and the lounge being south facing provides a very bright interior.

It is a very warm apartment as it benefits from double glazing, cavity wall insulation and the highest recommended levels for loft insulation.

The whole apartment was remodelled when we moved in including new central heating, new kitchen, new bathrooms, new high-quality carpets throughout and new double glazing.

The communal areas (landing and stairs) have an unusual feature and that is the thick pile carpet that provides a touch of luxury. This area is being refurbished beginning in May this year.

We have enjoyed every minute that we were living at the apartment.

You may ask why are we moving. We have now moved to Cornwall to be close to part of the family and grandchildren. Our daughter who also lived with us is moving to Yorkshire.

 

Tenure

We have been advised that the property is LEASEHOLD with 984 years unexpired. Each tenant owns 1 share in the Alderham Close FREEHOLD Company Limited and therefore benefits from no ground rent.

The current annual service charge to the Alderham Close Management Company is £1,683, paid half yearly (£841.50).

You should check this with your legal advisor before exchanging contracts.
