Can residents make alterations to their property? ×Alterations for reason such as a disability may be arranged with managements approval. The resident will be required to cover all costs associated with the alteration. 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.
When leaving the village, what is the process for units being sold? ×Bupa will market your Apartment and on resale refund the money you paid minus the Amenities Fee, and any other monies owing. Residents are welcome to introduce a prospective resident as long as they meet the normal entry criteria of the village.
Can residents have friends & family to stay? ×Yes, you are welcome to have visitors to stay for up to three weeks at a time. If your guests intend on staying longer, you will be required to get consent from the village manager.
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.
What happens if there is a delay in sale? ×If your unit has not been sold within six months of your licence termination, Bupa will pay what you are owed. If it sells sooner, Bupa will repay you upon settlement.
