  • How does the Freedom payment option work for you?

    Guarantees for confidence
    Backed by a range of guarantees that give you complete confidence in your move.
    Greater affordability
    You can defer your management fee until you decide to leave.
    Complete financial clarity
    No stamp duty, capital loss, property market fluctuations, or marketing and sales costs, meaning you’ll know exactly what you pay and when, as well as how much is returned and when.

    How it works

    Moving In

    Under your Freedom contract, you'll make a one time entry payment upon moving in. Enjoy life to the fullest now knowing your management fee will be settled after you leave your home.

    Living In

    You'll pay a monthly service fee to contribute to the upkeep of facilities, activities and community staff, and a Care & Lifestyle Membership fee giving you access to a broad range of support services, which are then paid for on a fee for service basis. 


    When it's time to leave your community we assist with a smooth transition. Under your Freedom contract you will receive the return of your entry payment less your accrued management fee within six months.

    Financial clarity, always

    Even before you move, you’ll know exactly what you pay and when, as well as how much is returned and when.

    No stamp duty
    Unlike residential property, you won’t pay any stamp duty, and you won’t be exposed to capital loss or property market fluctuations.
    No sales or marketing costs
    We also accept full responsibility for any marketing or sales costs if you decide to sell your Freedom home.
    Service fees stop
    Service fees will cease one month after you give vacant possession of your home.
