Windlestone Hall 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 Windlestone Hall 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 £84,690

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% = £8,469 already received
Original purchase price of £84,690 + 10% uplift = £93,159
Year 10 buy back = £105,863
