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

When you choose to make Sunstrip Village 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 Sunstrip Village, 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 Sunstrip Village is more affordable then other retirement 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 with Sunstrip Village.  The residential site agreement gives you exclusive right to occupy the land and to enjoy the village facilities and services during the term of the agreement.

There are many benefits of this agreement, as resident’s don’t have to pay stamp duty, council rates or state taxes.

For current site fees please get in touch with our friendly team. Your site rent will also be outlined in your residential site agreement. 

Centrelink may offer rent assistance with your site rent if you are eligible to receive income support payments.  This acts as an effective subsidy of the site rent payable to Sunstrip Village 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. 

Friends and relatives are most welcome at Sunstrip 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 by us at set times during the year.

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

Sunstrip Park is close to many facilities in the area such as the Blacksmiths and Swansea shopping precincts (approximately 1km away), RSL and other clubs, monthly markets and lots more. There are many fine a la carte and casual restaurants to choose from, offering a variety of cuisines in waterside locations.

Public transport is accessible outside the community entrance with a bus stop on each side of the Pacific Highway.

For those concerned about their health there is ready access to medical and allied health professionals with medical and allied health practices locally and hospitals with emergency departments within 20 minutes from the community.

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