Buying a home

  • Do I own my own home?
    Yes. Each home is sold on a Unit Freehold Title and you will own it just like your present home.
  • What do I pay for?
    You will pay for your electricity, phone and rates just as you would do in your current home.
    You will also need to pay a monthly amount to cover your insurance, maintenance to the outside of your home, and village running costs (at takeover you would also be required to pay the initial insurance on your home, after this it would be accumulated in your monthly charges, with any adjustments made at the end of the financial year).
  • How much is the monthly charge?
    Currently the monthly charge is $180.
    This covers the insurance for your villa, the outside maintenance for your villa, and your contribution to the village running costs.
    We endeavor to keep the Monthly Charges as low as possible.
  • What if I decide to sell my home?
    You hold the title to your home, therefore you are free to sell at any time provided that the purchaser is approved by the Management Committee and enters into the usual Occupancy Deed. Any appreciation in value (or capital gain) related to your home will be yours.
    When you sell your home you will be required to pay 5% of the sale price (+GST) to Tasman Village - these funds will be used for the future well-being and benefit of the village residents.
  • May I bring my pet?
    Pets are discouraged, but under certain conditions the Management Committee may consider allowing a resident to bring their cat with them. Dogs are not permitted to reside in the village.
  • What happens if I go on holiday?
    Enjoy your holiday, secure in the knowledge that your home and grounds are safe. However, it is helpful if you notify the management and your neighbours if you are going to be away.
  • What maintenance worries will I have?
    The committee will organise for the village grounds, community facilities and the outside of your home to be maintained.
    You are responsible for the inside of your home and your own personal garden and lawns. Your lawns can be mowed by our village contractor for an annual fee.
