St Johns Court is a purpose built complex constructed by Guinness Northern Counties Housing Association and designed to suit the needs of the over 55's. Each of the 26 units situated around this courtyard offers accommodation which has the benefit of many modern facilities including gas central heating and double glazing together with the logical requirements of the elderly including raised height power points and a warden call system. The court also has its own laundry and communal garden area for the residents use.
Whilst we are instructed by the vendors of 4 St Johns Court in its disposal on the open market it is a requirement of the Housing Association that any party interested in purchasing the property complete a simple questionnaire form designed to satisfy the conditions of the Association relating to the residents occupancy of the dwellings.
As the complex is part of a Housing Association Scheme residents purchase only 70 % of the market value of the dwellings with the Association retaining the remaining 30%. In addition to the purchase price, a monthly service charge is payable by the residents to cover maintenance costs, as of April 2017 this cost stands at £81. A more detailed pamphlet provided by the Housing Association explaining the occupancy conditions in greater depth is available from Guinness Northern Counties Housing Association.
