We understand that home ownership really does instill a sense of pride for many Australians. Like you, we were shocked to learn that many lifestyle villages don’t give you the option of owning the land. With Holiday Lifestyle, you own the house and the land with a 500 Year Registered Leasehold Title.
When you buy a Holiday Lifestyle site, you receive a registered leasehold title, which is an interest in land ownership with your name registered on the title at the Land Titles office.
A leasehold title is the equivalent to a freehold title, which is the same as your home. It can be sold to anyone, at any time.
Nobody should have to search the fine print for hidden costs, so with us, there are NO exit fees and NO surprises.
If you’re buying a Holiday Lifestyle site as your permanent residence, you’ll be exempt from stamp duty, so you can pop the champagne and celebrate!
If you’re purchasing the property as a holiday home or investment, stamp duty is based on the sale price. This is currently 5.5% of the purchase price.
At the end of the lease term, you are able to register your title for a further term.
This means with your current leasehold title, you own your Holiday Lifestyle site for 250 years. When that expires, you have the option to extend that for another 250 years, bringing your total lease to 500 years.
Keep in mind — Australia as a country is just 200 years old!

The fees are shared between all site owners and is calculated based on the lot, the lot size and liability of the land.
These fees — which are known as ongoing cost or total cost of ownership — includes rates, management, maintenance, lawn mowing, public lighting and public liability and more.
You annual fee covers many things, including:
An increase in fees will be based on actual cost increases. For example, if the rates increase by 10%, the budget would be increased by the same.
Let’s say your rates were $1,000 last year, but this year, the rates have increased by 10% to $1,100. The increase is $100. You would pay the increased expense calculated by the lot and liability of your site.
Yes, owners will need to pay building insurance. If you have any questions about insurance or you’d like help finding a competitive quote, give our office a call on 1800 788 968 and we can help you.
The good news is water rates are included in your cost of ownership, unless separately metered. Because electricity is metered separately, payment is required on a monthly basis.

As a permanent resident or holiday home owner, you have the option of purchasing a complete furniture package, or you could supply your own furniture.
So you can achieve the necessary rating, we ask that all furniture in your villa needs to be a satisfactory standard.
For permanent residents and holiday home owners, air-conditioning is an optional extra. We understand how important comfort is, so you will maximise your return on investment if you purchase air-conditioning for your villa.
Investment properties come with air-conditioning.
If you’re a investor or holiday home owner, you can permanently or periodically rent your villa. The on-site management can help manage this for you.
We don’t have a maintenance fund and we encourage any expenses related to your villa, like broken glasses or curtain rails, be fixed as soon as you can.
We can give you a quotation for the cost of repairs or maintenance, so you can continue to rent out your property for the highest return.
Management rights are the rights the Holiday Lifestyle has to let villas within the complex.
Provides a monthly statement to the landlord clearly indicating the lettings per month, the fees per month, net result, and either direct transfer to the landlord’s bank account or by cheque.
No, if you are a permanent resident or a holiday home owner, you don’t need to place your villa with management.
If you want to rent out your villa to generate income, then you’ll need to place your property with the onsite management so they can maintain control over overnight, short-term or long-term bookings.
Our Holiday Lifestyle management company has the experience and the knowledge to deal with any problems associated with tenants, and can represent the landlord at VCAT hearings to resolves any issues.
