Research from buy to let mortgage adviser, Paragon Bank[i], has highlighted that the number of over 55s renting has more than doubled in the last decade. Girlings Retirement Rentals, the UK’s market leader in retirement rentals, has also seen a major increase in demand for retirement rentals and points to new emerging hotspots including the Wirral in Merseyside.
For those looking to relocate to the Wirral, Girlings is currently offering two lovely apartments in Homebank House, a purpose built and modern development of 60 apartments in Prenton on the Wirral Peninsula. These include a large one bedroom apartment for £495 per calendar month on an assured tenancy and another one bedroom apartment at the same price.
Located between Prenton, Claughton and walking distance from Oxton Village, Homebank House (pictured above) is close to shops and transport links across the Wirral. Residents benefit from having a communal residents’ lounge where they can meet and socialise, communal gardens and from having the service charges, ground rent and maintenance costs included in the monthly rental.”
Renting on an assured tenancy through Girlings also gives people peace of mind they can remain in their property for as long as they wish. Any resident who moves in before 1 May 2021 can also enjoy one month’s free rent, which Girlings is currently offering on a select number of properties.
Jamie Turnbull, Business Director at Girlings Retirement Rentals, “Spring is the ideal time for people to move to a new location. We are receiving lots of enquiries from people looking for retirement rentals in the North West of England, and Homebank House offers beautiful apartments in a friendly and modern development, close to all the amenities and transport links.”
“Our developments offer older people a safe and secure living environment, where they can live independently but also have a community around them for socialising with if they wish. Each apartment has a 24-hour Careline alarm system which is reassuring for people as they get older, plus there is an on-site house manager for day to day support.”
Other properties available in Girling’s ‘one month’s free rent’ offer include a studio bedroom apartment at Sheridan Lodge in Bromley, Kent for £825 per calendar month on an assured tenancy and one bedroom apartment in St Peters Court, Bournemouth for £750 per calendar month on an assured tenancy.
