Ingoing Contribution

Ingoing contributions currently range from $235,000 for a one bedroom unit (no car parking) to $340,000 for a three bedroom unit with a garage.

Exit Fee

When you leave your unit, the amount you are refunded is basically the amount you paid as an Ingoing Contribution less a Termination Fee of $2,000 and the applicable Exit Fee.

Standard Licence Option
Under the Standard Option the Ingoing Contribution is the Standard Ingoing Contribution shown over the page. The Standard Exit Fee is 6% per year for the first 6 years. The maximum Standard Exit Fee is 36%.

Customised Licence Option
This option enables you and Brodribb Retirement Village to enter into a Residence Contract on terms which are customised to suit your particular circumstances. Terms which we may consider varying include the Ingoing Contribution Amount, the manner in which the Ingoing Contribution is paid and the Exit Fee amount.

Some prospective clients may have a preference to pay a higher Ingoing Contribution with lower Exit Fee percentages to maximise their pension. Others may wish to pay a lower Ingoing Contribution with higher Exit Fee percentages. We are happy to discuss these option with you and provide some examples of alternatives available
