Before you buy or rent
Please bear in mind that if you are seriously considering moving to Springhill you should be fully aware of the way the community works, your rights and responsibilities, the common house, cooking and eating, lawn mowing and all the other enjoyable and important aspects of cohousing. If you have, or intend to have, any cats or dogs it is essential you ask about the pets policy before making any decisions. Ask your prospective vendor or landlord to tell you exactly what your responsibilities will be and ask them to arrange for you to come and eat with us at one of the common house meals. The best way to find out about Springhill is to come on one of our visitor days. Neil Buick email@example.com arranges
