Your retirement living costs explained

Our simpler, clearer new sales contract

We understand that moving into a retirement village is a big decision – and one that may take you many years to make.

It’s so important that you and your loved ones are informed and understand the costs involved. Certainty and peace-of-mind are key, as well as clarity on exactly what your financial commitments are.

That’s why we’ve listened to your feedback, and simplified our Village contract. It gives you a financial model that’s easier to understand, and provides you with the confidence you need.

Our contract features:
  • Exit fee capped at 36% of what you paid
  • Guaranteed buyback after 18 months
  • No reinstatement or refurbishment costs when you leave
  • No sales and marketing costs
  • Market certainty with no capital losses or gains

We’ve put together a short video that helps you learn more about the Renaissance contract.

Your investment when moving in

Of course, making big life decisions can be a complex process – and choosing a retirement living is definitely one of life’s big decisions! Yet we certainly believe that at Renaissance, the rewards outweigh any uncertainty you feel while deciding.

To make this process easier for you, we help you to simply determine the long term costs. Our exit fee is capped at 36% of the ingoing contribution you pay when moving in.

You can imagine how being able to calculate exactly how much money you’ll receive when you leave helps enormously when planning your finances for the future.

Also, remember there is no stamp duty payable on your retirement living unit. That’s a big bonus when you’re working through the sums of buying and selling.

Your lifestyle while living in the Village

Your new retirement lifestyle can have a hugely positive impact on your health and wellness. That’s why at Renaissance your monthly fees cover many essential services and thoughtful conveniences which will free up your time to spend on life’s pleasures.

The daily services and support you receive are funded by all village residents. We do not profit from our residents’ monthly fees. Instead, our budgets are designed so that income matches expenditure.

Services and conveniences included in your monthly fees:
  • Use of the leisure centre precinct – open to residents 24/7
  • Council rates – including all rates levied by Redland City Council and for the provision of services to the site such as water, sewerage etc.
  • Refuse collection & disposal
  • Emergency call facility (Tunstall Emergency Call System)
  • Insurance for buildings (not contents insurance)
  • Garden maintenance – including private courtyards and all common grounds
  • Lawn mowing throughout the village
  • Building and infrastructure maintenance & repairs
  • Village bus service – weekly shopping trips & other excursions
  • Management & administration
  • Electricity to all common areas
  • CCTV & security services around the village

Note that this fee does not include your personal expenses such as electricity, gas, contents insurance, telephone and internet services, pay TV, or healthcare.

Your peace-of-mind when you leave

No matter the circumstances, we understand that leaving your village home can be stressful for you and your loved ones. Rest assured you will not be burdened with preparing your villa for sale (except for normal wear and tear or damage). Our specialist team will take care of the refurbishment and prepare the villa for sale at no cost to you.

Our team will also expertly market your villa and conduct a professional sales process in the shortest timeframe possible. There are no sales and marketing costs or miscellaneous fees charged you to.

Plus, in the unlikely event that your villa hasn’t sold in a certain timeframe, we’ll buy it back from you.

That’s sure to give you the peace-of-mind you need to enjoy your retirement to the fullest.
