Less Bills and Admin
Living in a Lendlease village means that pile of bills on the kitchen bench is a thing of the past!It’s no secret that the cost of living is increasing. In 2015, an Australian study was released which showed 64% of Australians were facing some level of financial stress. And with the cost of living continually on the rise, it seems the stress on Australian families is going nowhere.
The good news is when you live in a retirement village, you can say goodbye to plenty of the costs and jobs you have in your family home. Living in a retirement village can save you money, as opposed to living in a residential home, when living costs are factored in. You want your retirement to be long, happy and stress free, and your financial situation can a huge role in your happiness.
Living in a retirement village is different to owning your own home or renting. In a retirement village, you buy the “right to reside” in your home and the right to benefit from the lifestyle facilities the village offers.
Aside from monthly payment fees, your main costs will be phone, internet, home electricity and contents insurance. Most Lendlease villages have free Wi-Fi in the community areas.
You can forget about all those household bills that used to arrive when you least expected them. No more building insurance, pool maintenance or mowing bills to pay as this is all taken care of in the monthly service fee.
There are a few other ways you save money when you choose to live in a Lendlease retirement village.
Many villages have a resident mini-bus which takes regular trips out. And as many Lendlease villages are centrally located, close to shops, medical services and usually with public transport nearby, you might even consider ditching
And for the intrepid traveller, sailor or caravanner, you will be happy to hear that in some villages, there is space for parking boats and recreation vehicles at a very reasonable cost. You can lock up and leave at the drop of a hat!
Without the constant worry of surprise bills, you’ll be free to make the most of your retirement. After all, this is the time for you to put your happiness first and really enjoy yourself.
