Your quick guide to Retirement Living
What should I consider before moving in?
Moving house for many people can be a stressful event with so much to organise. That’s why we try to make it as easy as possible. We will be on hand to assist in recommending suitably experienced real estate agents to handle the sale of your home, and we can put you in touch with a one-stop-shop service that can arrange furniture removal and disconnection/connection of utilities if you require.
Will I have to pay Stamp Duty at settlement on my home?
No. Stamp Duty is not payable on the purchase of your home at RSL Care SA Retirement Living. This can be a significant saving if you are considering traditional residential housing as an alternative. For example the current stamp duty on a $450,000 home equates to approximately $13,500 – imagine what you could do with this saving?
What contracts will I have to sign?
When buying a home within a Retirement Village, typically you will be required to enter into a Residence Agreement. It has been prepared in accordance with the South Australian Retirement Villages Act 2016, which is policed by the Office of Consumer and Business Affairs.
A complete set of contracts will be issued to you 10 days prior to signing any agreement. These contracts will include a product disclosure statement. We recommend that you take this time to seek legal advice.
Do I need to get legal advice?
Although the legal documents have been prepared by an industry specialist solicitor, it is important to us that you feel totally confident and satisfied with your decision to buy and move to an RSL Care SA Retirement Village. Therefore our experienced sales team and management will remain on hand to ensure that the documentation is thoroughly explained and the opportunity to obtain clarification is provided. You are free to use a conveyancing service of your choice, however we recommend that you consult your solicitor, accountant or personal advisors for further explanation of the documentation and peace of mind.
What happens if the residents have issues with Management of the village?
At RSL Care SAs Retirement Villages we believe in a proactive approach to dealing with issues or concerns, for this reason we are committed to regular meetings with the residents committee, an open door policy between the residents and the Retirement Living Manager and a philosophy to always try to resolve issues or concerns in a timely and respectful manner. However dependant upon the issue you do have some options:
a) raise the issue with the residents committee to resolve at the regular meeting
b) directly approach the Retirement Living Manager
c) use the formal dispute resolution procedures as set out under the Retirement Villages Act and your Residence Agreement.
