FAQ

We Are Here To Help You With Any Questions You May Have

When you choose to make Pelican Shores 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 in Pelican Shores, 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 Pelican Shores 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 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 Pelican Shores Estate 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.

Friends and relatives are most welcome at Pelican Shores. 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 or monthly basis by us.

Residents are allowed pets provided that prior consent has been obtained from the Village Manager. Management consent will take into regard the type, size, potential noise and risk associated with the pet. All pets must be de-sexed and vaccinated.

All residents are responsible for their home maintenance including repairs and replacement of fixtures, fittings and appliances outside normal warranties.  

From the village its just a few minutes into Leopold where you’ll find everything you’ll need from supermarket, shops and eateries to medical services and leisure facilities. If you want to head into the city Geelong is just 10 minutes away while Melbourne is 1 hour away.

Subject to the terms of your agreement, you are free to sell your home for relocation offsite at any time.
