Q. How long is the lease on the lodge?
Initially the ownership lease is for 50 years, renewable after this time period.
Q. What site fees am I liable for?
Site fees run on an annual basis from 1st November, paid in full for the first year then on a quarterly basis thereafter. Insurance is as defined within the licence agreement, that being the buyer is responsible for insuring the lodge for its replacement value from the completion date.
Q. How do I pay for utilities?
Standard utilities are gas, water and electric which are all connected by a metering system. Our gas supply is LPG and is piped underground to each lodge. We benefit from mains water supply, with UK Power supplying electricity to each lodge on a meter. Meters are read monthly with a quarterly bill sent to you for payment by bank transfer or cheque payable at The Warren Estate Office or Reception.

With no over-head cables within the lodge park telephone usage is by mobile phone only. Any high street mobile phone provider can supply a sim card for internet and calling via WIFI when you sign up to a monthly contract with them.

An agreed deposit of £5,000 shall be paid on signing and entering into a sales agreement. This deposit is non-refundable and secures the lodge and pitch until the agreed completion date.
Q. Can I register for the local doctors?
Yes, we simply print you out a proof of ownership letter which you can use to register.
Q. What facilities do I get use of on the site?
Warren Lodge Park benefits from its own swimming pool and gym. At present each lodge owner gets complimentary usage of these facilities. The Warren Estate is due to invest in a gym extension in the near future which will also include a new coffee lounge.
Q. Do I get discounts on golf club membership or green fees?
Yes, at both The Warren and Bunsay Golf Clubs, subject to local t&c’s.
Q. How many consecutive weeks can I stay in my lodge as an owner?
We are open 50 consecutive weeks from 29th January each year, with the lodge park completely closed for a 2 week period between January 15th to 28th inclusive. There is no restriction on the use of your lodge within the 50 week period.
Q. Can I still get into my lodge when the park closes in January for two weeks?
Yes, we allow a daily maintenance visit between 9 am and 5 pm. We then secure the lodge park with a closed gate from 10 pm to 6 am every night during this closure period.
Q. What guarantees come on my new lodge?
Omar supply each lodge with a Gold Shield 10 year Warranty and first year snagging guarantee. Individual items like double glazed windows, roof pitch tiles and white goods all carry their own warranties. Please visit the Omar Lodges website on the link below for a full listing on each lodge.
Q. What happens if I decide to resell the lodge in the future?
On any future resale you can decide which agent to market the property with and set your own sale price. Our commission on a resale is currently 7.5% plus VAT of the whole consideration, inclusive of contents. On signing a licence agreement the buyer acknowledges this will take precedence over a sales agreement and any other verbal arrangement where applicable.
