What are the costs to live at 'St Louis on Blyth'?
The costs associated with moving into our Parkside retirement community is much the same as purchasing any other home, however, there are some key differences:
- There is no Stamp Duty or GST payable on the sale
- Your retirement village purchase will be subject to a Resident Licence Agreement. We recommend you talk to a lawyer and family members so you understand the terms of purchasing under such an agreement.
You will also need to pay for telephone and internet usage, as well as an insurance premium should you wish to insure the contents of your home.
Is there a waiting list?
There is a short waiting list for our prestige retirement properties, and you can add your name at any time. When a property becomes available for you, we will contact you by telephone. We endeavour to have the purchase of your home at St Louis on Blyth to coincide with the settlement of the sale of your current home.
Can I bring my pet?
Of course any four-legged or two-winged family members are welcome to come with you to your new home. Although, there are some obvious guidelines around having pets in a retirement community that you'll need to adhere to for the safety and comfort of your neighbours. Requests to bring a pet should be submitted in writing ahead of your move-in date.
Are family members permitted overnight or for holidays?
Yes. All friends and family are welcome. We ask as a matter of courtesy that you notify the retirement village management if a guest is coming to stay more than overnight. Please refer to the License Agreement for details.
Can I bequeath my home?
In the event of your passing, your St Louis on Blyth retirement village home must be returned to management for resale in accordance with the terms and conditions of your license agreement. The proceeds of the sale then form part of your estate.
