Can residents have friends & family to stay? ×Friends and family are very welcome to stay with you in your cottage or apartment for up to five weeks and may use the communal facilities whilst in your company.
What does the entry fee cover? ×A new resident will purchase an ORA in a cottage or apartment, and the price is refunded to the resident on their exit from the cottage or apartment, (less the amenity contribution and admin fee), once a new resident has bought an ORA in that same unit.
What are the residents rights if the village got into financial difficulty? ×The Retirement Villages Act 2003 requires the appointment of a statutory supervisor who represents the interests of the residents. The statutory supervisor deals with the financial transaction of entering into and termination of ORAs, reviews annual accounts of retirement villages and acts on behalf of residents where appropriate. The statutory supervisor attends several residents meetings in the year. A Deed of Supervision made between the Trust and our statutory supervisor is available for inspection on request. In addition, your legal interest in the Village is secured by an encumbrance over the Village land held by the statutory supervisor which ranks ahead of mortgage securities, with the benefit of this protection remaining should the Village ever change hands.
What happens if there is a delay in sale? ×If the property has not been sold within 3 months the village is required to let the resident (or enduring power of attorney) know in writing and provide monthly reports until it is sold. These reports will contain what steps the village is taking to market the property and the progress being made. Weekly fees cease after 3 months without a sale. If the property has not been sold after 6 months then the village (at its expense) must obtain a written valuation by an independent registered valuer. The resident is welcome to have their own valuation completed (at their cost) with a registered valuer. The village is then required to market the property according to the valuations completed. If the property has not been sold after 9 months then the resident has the option to raise a dispute notice in accordance with the occupation right agreement. If it takes longer than nine months to re-license, Metlifecare will pay you interest on the outstanding capital.
What do resident fees cover? ×Residents pay a fortnightly fee to cover rates, water rates, property insurance, exterior maintenance of their cottage/apartment, staff wages, gardening, emergency call system and other general costs.
How long is the cooling off period once the contract is signed? ×You may cancel the ORA by giving notice to the Trust within 15 working days after you have signed the ORA.
When leaving the village, what is the process for units being sold? ×When you permanently leave your cottage or apartment, your ORA will terminate. It is then the responsibility of the Village to sell the next ORA on the cottage or apartment. The value of the new ORA will be based on annual valuations and actual similar sales that have occurred in the Village. You will receive payment for your cottage or apartment once the new resident has taken occupation. The sale process is governed by the regulations of the Retirement Act 2003 and Code of Practice 2008. Until a new ORA is sold, the fortnightly fee continues to be payable ,(we still have to pay rates and insure etc), but if not sold within 6 months the fee reduces to 50%. Our disclosure statement, available on request, gives details on the length of time we are taking to resell ORAs.
