Land lease living

Costs and savings

The land lease model is a simple, financially sound way to finance the lifestyle you want now and into the future.

There is no stamp duty to pay when you purchase a home, or exit fees like a deferred management fee to pay when you sell. And all capital gain is yours to keep. No additional legal fees either, although you are welcome to engage a solicitor at your own expense, if you choose.

As a homeowner there are no council rates, exit fees, or strata fees to manage. Your only ongoing expenses are the weekly site fee and utilities.

Like any other property, an Ingenia Lifestyle home forms part of your estate. Beneficiaries are free to sell or if eligible, take occupancy of the home when and if they meet community requirements.

Weekly site fee

The site fee covers the rent of the land the house is on, use of shared amenities and the costs associated with the maintenance of common facilities, gardens, and grounds by a dedicated on-site maintenance team.

Site fees are reviewed annually in line with State legislation and vary between locations, so be sure to contact your community of interest directly for more detailed information.

Rental assistance and the pension

In some cases, residents receiving a government pension are eligible for rent assistance which can help offset the weekly site fee. The amount of money you save depends on the weekly site fee and your personal circumstances. Similarly, buying a home in a community may affect your pension and any rental assistance entitlements.

For more information about how rent assistance is determined and calculated, or to determine your eligibility, visit the Services Australia website or talk to a financial specialist with industry knowledge.
