How it works at Mayfield
What fees do I need to pay if I live in a retirement village?
At Mayfield we collect a monthly management fee and deferred management charge, to cover the village costs and the expense of any major works required. This covers exterior maintenance of your home, buildings insurance, Mayfield Club membership, 24/7 security, village and grounds upkeep, and charges associated with the business such as staffing. When the time comes for structural repairs or improvements such as resurfacing road and pathways or reroofing, these are all covered.
Your monthly management fee is charged per month depending on the option you choose when you buy a property here, and the deferred management charge is payable from the sale of your home, or change of occupier. This means everyone who lives in a Mayfield village can relax, knowing there will always be enough funds to carry out any works and guarantee that each property can increase in value on the housing market. As soon as you’ve sold or let your property you contribute 1% of the achieved market price or agreed valuation, per year of occupation, before gaining profits.
More about fees
I rent my current property, can I still buy a property at Mayfield?
That is certainly an option. Our sales team are very experienced in property sales and can talk through all options available to you as a new homeowner. Retirement mortgages are also an option that some people consider. We can arrange a visit, either face to face or over the phone, to talk through your requirements and current situation.
Can I sell my Mayfield property later?
When you come to sell your home, our staff will help complete the sale as quickly and as efficiently as possible. On all resales, Mayfield will charge a sale administration fee of 1% of the greater of the achieved market price or agreed valuation. This covers the costs that Mayfield incurs in administering sales and explaining the Mayfield retirement living concept to prospective buyers.
There are two options to be able to sell your property. You can direct a traditional estate agent and negotiate fees directly with your agent. Alternatively, we can market your property to our database and waiting lists. We charge a 2% sales agency fee for the sales value achieved.

Integrated Lifestyle: Facilities like restaurants, bars, gyms, cinemas, community halls and gardens offer optional activities and social opportunities.
Integrated Well-being and Care: Personal and domestic care can be delivered within people’s homes if they wish. Dedicated staff teams are on site 24/7.
Integrated with Wider Communities: Connections with wider communities through family, friends, intergenerational, volunteering or leisure opportunities are valued and cherished.
