Queensland has more than 300 registered retirement villages schemes.
To live in a registered retirement village, you must enter into a residence contract and pay a one-off ingoing contribution.
In return, you have the ´right to reside´ in a retirement village (i.e. live in a village unit) and access to one or more services for an ongoing charge.
Types of retirement villages
Various types of retirement villages are available.
Accommodation titles include:
- freehold - where the resident holds freehold title to the accommodation unit
- leasehold - where the resident´s lease is registered on the title to the retirement village land
- licence - a contract between the resident and the operator, where the contract is not registered on the land´s title
- other - includes shareholder and company title.
Please seek legal advice on which retirement village type suits your needs.
