Cost of living at White Oak Court
You will pay us a basic rent and a service charge, which includes heating and hot water. Part of living at White Oak Court means that an element of your service charge will cover the cost for you to have a three-course hot lunch every day in the restaurant (delivered to your flat during the Covid-19 pandemic). You can claim housing benefit if you are eligible but there will be parts of the service charge that are not covered by housing benefit. You will also have to pay all the usual household expenses.
