Frequently asked questions
How long do I have to wait?
All of our Stage 1 (9 Villas) have now been completed and are ready to be occupied.
What are the deferred management fees (departure fees)?
When you move to our 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 and
calculated on the price of the home on entry.
Share of any capital gain/loss payable to you/by you on termination is 50%.
Once I have decided on the purchase of a unit, how long do I have to pay?
We will hold your deposit of $1,000 against your home of choice. 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.
