They also offer a 110% buy-back from exchange, or 125% buy-back in year 10, in the unlikely event that they haven’t sold the studio to an end user by then.

St Austell Care Community - Investment Options For Investors
Investors can purchase the leaseholds of individual care studios within our development portfolio at a 30% discount on their full market price. On completion, investors can choose one of three ways to receive their income:

Option 1: Investor as Landlord
Receive rental income based on the studio’s market rate, with a developer’s cash-back (3% of purchase price) on completion to cover the period of refurbishment works. Rental income will then be paid when the studio is occupied.

Option 2: Managed Service
Receive a 10% fixed monthly income by using a lease management company, such as our preferred supplier Care Home Freehold Ltd ( This will safeguard income regardless of whether the studio is occupied or not. The same developer’s 3% cash-back is paid during refurbishment works, and the investor will pay the managing agent a one-off fee of 25% of the total annual rent to cover legal, admin and maintenance fees.

Option 3: Self Occupancy
An investor may choose to pay the full market price for the studio, either for their own use or for a family member (T&Cs and eligibility criteria apply).

Investors can choose to swap between these options at any time (T&Cs apply).


The Exit Strategy
Key to the appeal of the St Austell Care Community investment is its clearly defined exit strategy, which allows investors to exit the investment with a guaranteed increase of 10% on top of the original unit purchase price. This buy back option is key to the strategy of the developer, and as such they are motivated to purchase the unit back from the investor within a short to medium time frame.


Buy Back Options
From exchange of contracts - 110% (end user purchase)
From Year 5 - 110% investor option
From Year 10 - 125% investor option
This buy back option is exercised by the developer when they sell the unit on to the end user (tenant).

A working example of a typical investment is included below:

Stage One:
Investor purchases care home unit for reduced price of £85,400

Stage Two:
From exchange of contracts, the investor starts to earn 10% net rental income, paid monthly.
Stage Three:
Although the developer can purchase the unit back at any point after exchange of contracts (for a guaranteed 10% increase on the investor's purchase price), we have used an example time frame of 12 months below:
12 months’ rental income at 10% = £8,540 already received
Original purchase price of £85,400 + 10% uplift = £93,940
£85,400 plus 25% = £106,750 total, a return of 20% in twelve months.


Why Invest In Care Homes?
Residential care home sector is currently worth £15.9 billion and is currently struggling with the high demand of elderly people needing home. For the first time the amount people in the age group over 60 (14 million) is now outnumbering the under 16 age group (11.5 million).

Between 2012-2032 the population of over 85s (the primary users of care homes) is expected to increase by 106%, and the total number of older people with care needs is expected to increase by over 60%. This would therefore mean there is growing demand for modern, fit-for-purpose care homes, funded by private investment.

The UK has an ageing population. The proportion of people aged over 65 has increased over the past 30 years – a trend that is predicted to continue. This trend will place added pressure on the UK’s health care, social care, housing and the economy.

According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the UK is at its oldest ever. In mid-2014, there were some 11.4 million people living in the UK aged 65 and over – making up 17.7% of the population, up from 11.1 million the previous year. The ONS predict a quarter of the population will be over the age of 65 by 2044. Furthermore, the number of people aged 75 and over has increased by 89% over the period, now making up 8% of the population.
