What are the benefits of a retirement village over other lifestyle choices?

Purchasers who choose lifestyle living are not protected by the Retirement Living Act. Under the land lease model, homeowners own their home while leasing the land. This land could be resold to another developer, and you often pay higher weekly service fees.

As Sherwin Rise is a retirement village in Victoria, it is legally defined and governed by the Retirement Villages Act 1986 (Vic). It promotes independent living and provides amenities and services covered in the service fees. Lendlease is a highly credible, publicly listed Australian company that has been building communities since 1966. It is important to understand that when you buy into a Lendlease retirement village, typically Lendlease owns the land and homes. The “right reside” in the home on a lease or licence is then sold to a resident.  Residents at Sherwin Rise also have added peace of mind as the village is a gated community with video intercom access controls and CCTV security cameras.
