Retirement Living Fees Explained
A guide to retirement living fees and charges
We understand Retirement Living costs can be confusing. Here at Garden Village, we are happy to guide you through the process. If you buy-in to an apartment at Garden Village, you enter a loan licence agreement. You pay zero stamp duty and when you leave there are no refurbishment or relisting costs. There are a few costs for you to consider.
– The Ingoing Contribution
– Non Refundable Component
– Deferred Management Fee
– Recurrent Charges
The Recurrent Charges are monthly fees for maintenance, rates, insurance, water, rubbish removal, emergency call monitoring and the upkeep of the Village.
Garden Village offers three options to buy-in to our community at The Cascades and The Banksia. Let us explain with some examples and this helpful animation explainer.

Three options explained
Garden Village offers three options to buy-in to our community. Let us explain with some examples. We hope this gives you a good idea of the costs involved when moving into a Garden Village Retirement Living Apartment.
Option 1 is an upfront payment – for peace of mind.
Let’s say the Ingoing Contribution is $550,000. You pay the Ingoing Contribution PLUS the Deferred Management Fee at the time of moving in.
We also deduct the non refundable amount at 9.5%.
