Life in a retirement village is full of opportunities, with many leisure and community facilities at your doorstep. Of course, providing these amenities costs money. That’s why we have an ongoing retirement village fee, known as the monthly service fee.
While your incoming and outgoing costs can vary depending on your contract, all residents pay the monthly service fee.
The monthly retirement village fee gives our village residents a worry-free lifestyle. Without it, we couldn’t provide the facilities, services and amenities our residents love. It’s a worthwhile investment in creating a village lifestyle and environment that’s low on maintenance and big on living.
Our monthly retirement village fees are what you pay each month to cover day-to-day operations and village upkeep. While it's usually called the monthly services fee, you might also hear it called a recurrent charge, a maintenance charge, a service fee or a general services charge.
We calculate the monthly service fees based on village running costs. The monthly cost can vary depending on the services and facilities offered by each village. We follow the strict legislation that governs our monthly service fees. Every year, our village managers prepare a village budget in consultation with the resident committee. This process determines the monthly fees under the legislative requirements.
Monthly service fees go towards the costs of running the village, which may include*:
*Inclusions can vary from village to village. Please check with your village sales manager for the details of what’s included for your village.
We’re dedicated to helping you make the most of village life every day. Our monthly service fee is an important contribution to your retirement lifestyle. It means you get to live a worry-free life with all the fantastic facilities and services our villages are known and loved for.
