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. 

These are:

– 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.
