Costs

We understand costs are a big consideration when you are considering moving into a retirement village. We want to help you through the process of joining the Clayton Church Homes family.

Upfront costs

Purchasing a Licence to Occupy

Residents purchase a Licence to Occupy at the time of moving into your retirement village unit or apartment. This is the only upfront cost, with a Deferred Management Fee retained upon exist.

We will discuss this with you when you apply.

Fees and Charges

During your time with us, the only fees charged by Clayton Church Homes are weekly Maintenance Fees, which vary from village to village. These Maintenance Fees are designed to cover the operational running costs of the village and not designed for profit.

More information and site-specific costs can be obtained when enquiring with us.

Maintenance Fees are agreed upon by residents of each respective Retirement Village during the annual budget consultation process and ratified by our Board of Directors. There are no hidden fees or charges.

Maintenance Fees cover the majority of property-related costs, with the exception of electricity, phone/internet and gas.

Concessions

Residents are encouraged to seek information on eligibility for concessions, via www.sa.gov.au/concessions or by calling the Concessions hotline on 1800 307 758.
