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)

    When you move to Rowland Village, the payment you make upon entry is partially refundable. There is a deduction for management fees that is calculated at 10% 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 unit on entry.

  • Capital Gain?

    Capital gain is not shared it remains with the owner/operator, not
    the resident.

  • 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.

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