Frequently asked questions
How long do I have to wait?
This depends on both your circumstances and our waiting list. When you are ready to make the move, we are often able to help you find your new home in a short time.
What are the deferred management fees (departure fees)?
The deferred management fees (departure fees) which are calculated on a daily basis are 3.5% per annum to a maximum of 35% over 10 years based on the in-going contribution of the incoming resident.
The resident receives 100% of the capital gain noting point 2 above (calculation of deferred management fees adjusted).
Once I have decided on the purchase of a unit, how long do I have to pay?
If you need to sell a home to come into the village, we will hold your deposit against your villa of choice for four weeks. At the end of this time, if your current home is not actively being marketed, we will refund your deposit to allow other clients who are more ready to proceed the same opportunity. If your home is on the market, we will continue to hold the villa in your name but would expect settlement within three months from date of deposit. At the end of this period, we would review the situation with you and we may be able to offer you an extension. Your deposit is fully refundable at any time should you not proceed to settlement.

What happens if we are/I am no longer able to live independently?
You are able to apply for RSL LifeCare at Home (1300 306 885), or for transfer to our Residential Aged Care Home, Bill Newton VC Gardens which is next door to Horizons Village. To access these services, your care needs will need to be assessed by the local health services ACAT Team (Aged Care Assessment Team) and an My Aged Care Support Plan would need to be provided. At that time, the Village Manager will be able to provide with you details of the appropriate contact person who can explain the relevant requirements for access to these services. Also, the Australian Government has very useful information about moving into aged care on the website www.myagedcare.gov.au.
Please understand that the Retirement Villages Act requires us to inform you that access to these facilities cannot be guaranteed, however, we are able to clearly show that we are regularly able to accommodate retirement living residents in our Care Homes.
