A land lease community is a gated residential community operating under the land lease model, supported by specific government legislation which guarantees ongoing security and peace of mind.

The model lets you enjoy the benefits of conventional home ownership. Should you ever wish to sell, the capital gain is all yours, without fees. But you also enjoy some of the advantages of renting – no council rates and no stamp duty. No strata or body corporate fees. Just a weekly site fee which eligible residents offset with rent assistance.

Land lease agreements are simple and transparent, a modern solution that has evolved alongside the changing face of life after full-time work. It offers flexibility and freedom as well as security and support for long, rich lives of camaraderie and community.


Supported by solid legislation

While the specific legislation governing the land lease model varies from state to state, the rights and obligations for vendors and residents are largely similar.
