Can residents make alterations to their property? ×Alterations for reason such as a disability may be arranged with managements approval.

When the resident leaves the village, they may be required to revert the unit to its original state (at the resident’s cost).
What do resident fees cover? ×Residents pay a village weekly fee, monthly in advance, which is calculated as a proportion of the cost of the village outgoings. This fee includes costs such as rates, insurance, rubbish collection, security patrols, lawn & garden maintenance etc.
How long is the cooling off period once the contract is signed? ×As per the Retirement Villages Act, the cooling off period after an Occupation Right Agreement has been signed is 15 working days.

Residents are welcome to introduce a prospective resident as long as they meet the normal entry criteria of the village.

What does the entry fee cover? ×The entry cost gives the resident the right to live in the unit for their lifetime or as long as they choose as well as use the services and communal areas in the village.
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 Statement and the village is run in a financially responsible manner.
