Frequently asked questions
How long do I have to wait?
Kingsford-Smith Village is a brand-new retirement village currently being constructed in stages. When you are ready to make the move, we are here to assist you to select your new home.
What are the deferred management fees (departure fees)?
When you move to Kingsford-Smith Village, the payment you make upon entry is partially refundable. There is a deduction for management fees of 10% of the entry price on the day you move in and a further 2% per annum for a maximum of 10 years calculated on the price of the home on entry.
Any capital gain or loss is shared 50–50 between the Residents and the Operator.
Once I have decided on the purchase of a home, how long do I have to pay?
For units currently under construction, your deposit holds the home of your choice until we advise you of an occupation date, at which time we would expect you to commence marketing of your current home, if you need to sell to settle. For re-lease homes, we will hold your deposit against your home 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 ready to proceed the same opportunity. If your home is on the market, we will continue to hold the home in your name but would expect settlement within three months from date of deposit. At the end of this period, we will 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.
The Village strongly recommends that every potential new resident seeks independent financial and legal advice.
