If you’re considering moving into a retirement village, you want transparency and simplicity when it comes to understanding everything from costs to ownership.
You can secure a property you’re interested in at Buderim Gardens with a $1,000 reservation fee. This is fully refundable if you decide not to go ahead with the purchase. If you do decide to purchase, you will be given a contract and the time needed to review it thoroughly. We also recommend you consult a solicitor. The contract will explain in further detail what type of ‘tenure’ you will have for the property – at Buderim Gardens we offer a loan lease agreement.
In addition to the purchase price, there will be an ongoing service fee or levy to cover the day-to-day operating costs and the upkeep of the village. Lendlease does not make a profit from this levy. When you sell your property, you will need to pay a Deferred Management Fee (DMF), also known as a ‘exit fee’. All of the costs will be explained to you by your Sales Manager and are outlined in the Public Information Document that will be provided to you when you are ready to take that next step.
Buderim Gardens has a manager who is on site during business hours and is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the village. The village manager is your first point of contact if you have any questions or concerns and they will always try to address them fairly and promptly. You are also encouraged to have a say in how your village is run by sharing any ideas you may have with your village manager.
