“We couldn’t do the mowing of lawns and play bowls at the same time, and we wanted more time to do what we wanted instead of endless cleaning. It certainly has allowed me to free up time to lead a busy life in the community as the president of the Ladies Bowls and be on the Board of Directors at the Morisset Country Club.
Land lease communities are a wonderful idea so many people are able to benefit from owning the home and leasing the land. It means, for people who are worried about confusing contracts or income, the transparent agreement on a land lease community is a very good option. If residents are on a pension it also means they can claim government rent assistance. So many people are paying enormous amounts of cash to live in a traditional retirement village and they don’t even own the walls…they’re paying $500,000 to enter into the village and they can’t even write it into their estate.
Our home is in a unique position in the community where we can sit on the back patio and look out into the lovely serene trees and surrounds. We used to own a plant nursery so having a garden for Fred was important so he can still tend to plants and flowers, plus Ingenia Lifestyle The Grange has a really nice relaxed atmosphere to it with all the trees.”
