There is a lifetime Occupational Right in the resident(s) name ensuring the resident(s) inalienable right to occupy the particular cottage.

This Occupational Right is terminated:

  • On the death of the resident(s)
  • On resident(s) transferring to another cottage unit in the Village.
  • By agreement with the Village owners or by sale of the property.

Full details are contained in the company Occupational Right Agreement, Disclosure Statement, Code of Practice and Residents Rights Guide. The village is governed by the Retirement Village Act 2003 and an independent Statutory Supervisor. All these documents are available when you decide to purchase a cottage.


When you exit your Cottage your Occupation Right Agreement payment will be refunded to you when the cottage is on sold to another occupier, less a Lifecare deduction of 27.5% of the purchase price. The Lifecare portion is amortised over a 4 year period. Balance is refundable should your occupancy be less than four years. Full details are in the Occupational Right Agreement documentation
