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 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 the village. 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.
