Frequently asked questions
How long do I have to wait?
We have a waiting list and we would encourage you to add your name to the list and we will notify you as soon as a villa becomes available.
What are the deferred management fees (departure fees)?
When you move to First Fleet Village, Penrith the payment you make upon entry is partially refundable. There is a deduction for management fees of 10% (nonrefundable) of the entry price of the home on the day you move in, and a further 2% per annum for a maximum of 10 years and calculated on the price of the home on entry.
There is no sharing of any potential gain or loss – it remains with the Operator
Once I have decided on the purchase of a home, how long do I have to pay?
As the homes are currently under construction, we will hold your deposit of $5,000 against your home of choice until we can advise you of the completion date of your unit. At that time, if you do need to sell your current home to come into the village, we would then expect you to commence active marketing of your home with settlement expected within three months of that date. 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.
