Woodlands Retirement Village is owned by its shareholders, the residents.
No, Woodlands Retirement Village is quite different from other villages. It is a Company Title village. When you buy a unit or Serviced Apartment at Woodlands you own it. It is not owned by a separate operator.
No. Woodlands Retirement Village does not charge a deferred management fee or departure fee.
As a Company Title village, you will pay stamp duty.
Our over 55s units and serviced apartments sales are handled by individual Real Estate agents. At the moment, Brian Donnelly from W Group has many of our units for sale. You can also talk to Allis or Cathy at Woodlands – ph. 9481 8842
You are buying direct from the owner of the unit or over 55s serviced apartment. Your solicitor/conveyancer will assist you to purchase from the vendor.
The only upfront contribution you pay to Woodlands Retirement Village is a contribution towards our Capital Improvement Fund. This fund is used to finance future Capital Improvements to the village. The amount is set at 2.5% of the purchase price of the unit or serviced apartment, and is paid direct to Woodlands Retirement Village.

Do I have to pay the monthly fees until I sell the unit?
Yes. If you purchase a Company Title unit, you are required to pay the fees until you sell the unit. It must be noted that you are not paying a Deferred Management Fee on departure. In other villages this can be up to 50% of the purchase price of the unit
Yes. Each unit is allocated a parking space. If there is not already a car space allocated to that unit, we will reallocate a visitor space to you, with your unit number on it.
Carports are individually owned by the residents who have chosen to build them. Most areas where carports can be built have now been used, so there are limited areas where carports can be built now, so there are no guarantees that a carport can be built.
An application for a carport must be lodged with the Board, who will consider the request and identify where it may be possible to build a carport. If there are no places in which to build a carport then you may be able to rent one or purchase one from the owner.
Yes, you can make changes, but we ask that you submit your application for changes to the Board for approval. There are some works which will affect common areas, which need to be overseen. This also helps us to ensure the contractors have the correct certification, and help us to coordinate parking and contractor access.
Retirement Living aims to set and maintain high standards in the marketing, selling and operation of retirement communities, including complaints and dispute management procedures for operators and residents.
