Frequently Asked Questions

What is it like to live in one of your developments?
One of the most frequent comments we get is that people wish they had moved to an Alpha development earlier in life. In sheltered housing you will live independently in your own apartment. Some people choose not to get involved in activities. You can close your own front door and enjoy the peace and quiet! Most people however want to join in the life of a development. There is always something going on, and someone to talk to. Each of our developments has a lounge where people gather and where activities such as coffee mornings take place. Most developments have an active social committee which organises entertainment or visits. More importantly there is bound to be someone who has similar interests to you!
Is moving a big step?

It can be, but we’re here to help. Moving from the family home or larger accommodation can take a bit of planning, especially if you’re moving somewhere smaller. We can give advice on the next steps and on budgeting.

What’s included in your charges?

Each development charges a rent and a service charge. In some developments, heating and water rates are included in the service charge. The service charge will typically pay for things like the Development Manager, laundry room (including use of washing machines and driers), communal areas including the lounge, maintenance of the lift, fire safety, gardening, window cleaning, door entry systems and the emergency warden call system.

Can I bring my pet?

In most cases we would say “yes”. If a pet has been a loyal companion and isn’t any trouble to other residents, then your four-legged friend is very welcome. We would usually only say no if there are already a number of pets in the development.

We know that moving into a new home can lead to lots of questions. We’ve tried our best to answer the ones we hear most often here. If you’re still not sure about anything concerning Alpha, or our developments, please don’t hesitate to contact our team today on 0330 460 9870.
