Cognatum Estates Limited

Cognatum  is an independent, not-for-profit company limited by guarantee with over 30 years’ experience in managing upmarket retirement developments in the UK.  Based in Oxfordshire, it is one of the leading companies in its sector with over 60 private estates in 21 counties, and one in the Channel Islands.

All our private estates are in prime locations and set in beautifully landscaped gardens.  Each has a comprehensive management service organised by an estate manager who is also available for advice and to respond to emergencies.  The ethos is to provide a service for those who want a more relaxed way of life without sacrificing standards, or perhaps wish to spend more time abroad and want a secure and maintained home whilst they are away. 

Cognatum is a member of the Association of Retirement Housing Managers (ARHM).  The board of directors is made up of a chairman, three executive directors and five other non-executive directors including two who are Cognatum property owners.  In addition there is a panel of eight owners, the Residents Advisory Panel, who meet twice a year to comment and advise on Cognatum's activities, policies and processes. The company is firmly focused on providing a professional and personal style of estate management service and on extending its services to other retirement schemes in the UK.  It publishes a newsletter twice a year with news and information about properties for sale.   Our mission statement is to provide "Exclusive retirement property for the  55+ with security and exceptional service, managed with integrity and value for money".
