Marie Claire Retirement Village Costs

Purchase Cost

This is the cost of purchasing your independent living unit (home).

You’ll pay the $2,000 fully refundable holding deposit then the rest at settlement.

Ongoing Cost

As a resident, you will pay a weekly fee to cover the costs associated with the lifestyle. Your weekly fee will include your general services charge and maintenance reserve fund contribution which includes:

  • Management and administration of the village
  • Cleaning of common areas of the village
  • Day to day maintenance of village gardens and facilities
  • Village transport
  • Council rates, water, insurance and waste management.
Exit Cost

When you leave the village you will have an exit fee (deferred management fee). Your exit fee is calculated on a daily basis in accordance with the terms of your Residence Contract. The Exit Fee is payable when the right to reside in the Villa is re-sold to a new resident and is then deducted from your exit entitlement. This deferred payment fee covers large-scale village improvements and Marie Claire Retirement Village’s investment.

Marie Claire Retirement Village will prepare, market and sell your home for you, in most cases at no extra cost, except in the event of exceptional wear and tear, damage, or alterations or additions to your home. If your home does not sell within 18 months we guarantee you’ll be paid your exit entitlement.

Marie Claire Retirement Village Contracts

Prior to you making a purchase decision you will be provided with a suite of legal documents for you to review, including a Village Comparison document, Residence Agreement and Prospective Costs document. You are required to have the Prospective Costs document for a minimum period of 21 days (or 7 days with a waiver signed by solicitor) prior to signing the Residence Agreement.

We recommend you seek independent advice from your solicitor and financial planner.
