    What are the residents rights if the village got into financial difficulty? ×
    Residents are protected through a first ranking mortgage with the Village's Statutory Supervisor . They hold first ranking mortgage over the village land in order to ensure priority and security for the rights of all residents. The statutory supervisor also ensures the operator of the village acts in accordance with the Disclosure Statements and the village is run in a financially responsible manner.
    What happens if there is a delay in sale? ×
    Your village fee will cease as soon as Metlifecare is provided with vacant possession of your unit. If it takes longer than nine months to re-license, we will pay you interest on the outstanding capital. Plus you can apply for an early repayment of up to $20,000 of the capital sum when your unit is vacated.
