Simply the best in retirement living
Things to consider before moving to a retirement village
Ready for simply the best in
retirement living ? Then look no
further than the SA Lifestyle Village
Group, where you are now spoilt for
choice in four splendid locations.
The Copper Coast, Port Pirie, Port
Victoria and Moonta Lifestyle Villages
offer resort style independent living
for over 55s.
Choose from two or three bedroom
homes or single-bedroom serviced
apartments featuring the latest in
quality fittings and furnishings.
Each home includes ducted reverse
cycle air conditioning, rainwater
tank, paved surrounds and fully
fenced yards for your privacy.
Gardens are full of life and colour,
thanks to the Landscape Gardener
and Maintenance Manager, both
always readily available to lend a
hand. The function centre (yet to be
built in Port Pirie, Moonta & Port
Victoria) includes a games room
and large area for get-togethers and
relaxing BBQ area.
Life in the village provides residents
with a safe, community feeling, and
shared sense of fun and belonging
with like-minded friends.
The friendly support of sales and
administration staff, who are always
happy to provide assistance when
required, is just another comfort to
both residents and their families.
With so much on of fer, now is the
time to visit any of the four villages
in the SA Lifestyle Village Group
and begin the retirement you are so
If you are considering retirement
village living, you need to think about
what type of village you want to live
in and seriously consider what you
can af ford on a continuing basis.
In South Australia, retirement
villages are most commonly owned
and/or operated by either private
developers or non-government or
Once you have decided on a village
that you want to live in, you will
be asked to enter into a residence
This sets out your rights and
obligations and ultimately governs
the relationship between you and the
You should be aware that you do not
own the residence in which you live,
but rather have a lease or licence
that gives you the right to occupy
In some instances, you may have a
proprietary interest in the residence,
eg a community title.
You may not be able to transfer your
interest in the residence and you
may not be able to borrow money
against the property. You should
seek legal advice on this issue.
If you need to sell your home before
moving into a retirement village, it
is wise to ensure any contract you
enter into is subject to conditions
that meet your sale needs. If you
do not receive the amount that
you need or are expecting from
the sale of your home, then your
financial position can be seriously
Making a move under uncertain
financial conditions can create
additional pressure and stress and
diminish the positives about moving
into a new environment.
You also need to consider what else
you may need or want to purchase
eg new car, holiday, new furnishings,
air conditioning/heating, appliances.
It is important to remember that, like
any financial transaction the “buyer
beware” principle applies.
The value of “doing your homework”
before you enter into a contract
cannot be over emphasised.
It is very important that you fully
understand what you are agreeing
to and what the legal and financial
implications are for entering,
remaining in and leaving the village,
and the implications for any spouse
or partner you may have.
