Banksia Grove offers you the opportunity to be a local of the stunning Port Stephens region, where you can enjoy pristine beaches and national parks. Newcastle and Nelson Bay are just down the road where you’ll find a range of shops, leisure facilities and health services.
At Banksia Grove Village we offer modern, high quality homes at an affordable price.
When you choose to make Banksia Grove your home you will join a community of like-minded over 50s. We know that you will enjoy the independence and security that comes from living in our village and the wonderful lifestyle opportunities that arise. When you purchase a home at Banksia Grove, you’ll free up capital which will enable you to live a flexible and low maintenance life.
One of the reasons that a home at Banksia Grove is more affordable than other living options is that the ownership of the land and home is separate. Although you will own your home, you will not own the land.
Residents enter into a residential site agreement. The residential site agreement gives you exclusive right to occupy the land and to enjoy the villages facilities and services during the term of the agreement.
There are many benefits of this agreement, as residents don’t have to pay stamp duty, council rates or state taxes.
Your site fees will be outlined in your residential site agreement.
Centrelink may offer rent assistance with your site fees if you are eligible to receive income support payments. This acts as an effective subsidy of the amount payable each fortnight.
Residents’ tenure is secured by the terms of the Residential Land Lease Communities 2013 (Act) and the terms of their individual site agreement. Although a resident’s right of occupation is usually for a short initial fixed term period, the Act outlines that all site agreements automatically continue on the same terms after the expiry of the fixed term.
Residential Site Agreements can only be terminated in the limited circumstances outlined in the Act, and no resident can be removed without an order from the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
We have an onsite internet service provider that offers highly competitive rates and excellent signal and service.
Friends and relatives are most welcome at Banksia Grove. All residents are responsible for the actions and behaviour of their guests.
Residents are responsible for the payment of electricity, telephone, gas and water consumption in relation to their site. Each site has its own electricity and water meters, which are read and subsequently billed on a quarterly basis by us.
Banksia Grove is not a pet friendly village. If you are looking for a pet friendly village we suggest you take a look at our sister village Bayway which is just 10 minutes down the road.
All residents are responsible for their home maintenance including repairs and replacement of fixtures, fittings and appliances outside normal warranties.
Less than 10 minutes from Banksia Grove Village is both Medowie and Raymond Terrace where you’ll find all your daily essentials – supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, medical services and specialty shops.
Newcastle has many private and public health services including hospitals and specialists.
Subject to the terms of your agreement, you are free to sell your home for relocation offsite at any time.
