Frequently asked questions

  • 1. 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.

  • 2. What are the deferred management fees (departure fees)?

    When you move to Long Tan Village, Newcastle the payment you make upon entry is partially refundable. There is a deduction for management fees of 10% (non- refundable) 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.

  • 3. Capital Gain?

    There is no sharing of any potential gain or loss – both remain with the Operator.

  • 4. 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.

    The Village strongly recommends that every potential new resident seeks independent financial and legal advice.

    You are able to apply for LifeCare at Home (1300 306 885), or to transfer to our Residential Aged Care Home, Peter Badcoe VC House which is co-located on the site. 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.
