Initial Purchase Price
All residents pay an entry price for their villa and just like the property market, the amount you pay will vary depending on the location, the size and style of your chosen villa.
You will not be required to pay stamp duty on your villa as all of our villages operate under a loan/license arrangement and there are no conveyancing costs either. Nor do you need to worry about real estate fees when you vacate your villa, we take care of your villa refurbishment and on sale so you and your family don’t have to.
All residents pay fortnightly village fees (recurrent charges) to cover the costs of ongoing operation, management and maintenance of the village.
Village fees include:
- Council rates
- Water rates
- Building insurance
- Building and garden maintenance
Village fees do not include electricity, gas, contents insurance or personal expenses such as telephone, internet and health care.
You will be required to pay a departure (exit) fee when you leave an Anglican Care retirement village. This payment is deferred until you depart your villa and is deducted from your initial purchase price. This makes buying into our villages more affordable, allowing you more money to enjoy your retirement. This fee assists us in covering the costs incurred in the initial investment of the land, village construction and community facilities. The amount of your exit fee will depend on your individual villa and how long you’ve lived in the village.

Deciding to move into a retirement village is a major step. It is not only a lifestyle choice but an important financial decision. Our Customer Support Team are here to help you with each step in this process. After your initial enquiry, we will send our Information and Application pack. Once completed and returned, your details will be included on our Wait List for the Village(s) of your choice. We will keep in contact as units become available. There is no cost or obligation to stay on this Wait List.
The General Inquiry Document is required to be provided within 14 days of making an enquiry. This document will include general information about the Village including the types of dwellings, services and facilities available and costs involved.
When you have decided on the Village that you would like to secure a unit, we will provide the Disclosure Statement. This Statement contains more detailed information including the fees and charges specific to the unit you are interested in securing. This Statement will also be provided at least 14 days before you sign the Retirement Living Resident Occupancy Agreement.
Our Customer Support Team and Retirement Living Coordinator are here to help with any information you may need. The Department of Fair Trading is also a useful resource. They can be contacted on 133 220 or at www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au.
Waiting times can vary and we cannot guarantee the length of waiting time. In our experience, people often plan ahead and place their name on a Wait List before they are ready to move. Planning for the future can help you to feel more prepared when the time is right to downsize and enjoy the peace of mind and security that Retirement Living has to offer.
We will invite you to inspect the unit which is available. We will provide you with the Disclosure Statement and explain all information, including costs, regarding the unit being offered to you.

If you decide not to proceed with moving into this unit, the deposit will be fully refunded.
Unfortunately, pets are not permitted in our Retirement Living units and villages.
