Residents enter into a residential site agreement with Lakes Entrance Village. The residential site agreement gives you exclusive right to occupy the land and to 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 or council rates.
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’ security of tenure is provided under the terms of the Residential Site Agreement and under Parts 4, 5 and 6 of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997. Pursuant to the terms of the residential site agreement a resident has a right to occupy a residential site for a fixed term period ending on 31 December 2065.
If Lakes Entrance Village was to be sold at a future date, the new village owner is bound by the same terms and conditions of all existing residential site agreements. This means that there can be changes in the ownership of the village but all existing residential site agreements are protected and do not change.
