Southern Cross Care’s retirement living units are designed to provide affordable living for people throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory.

By giving you a fully equipped place to live at an affordable price, our units allow you to save money and free up capital. It’s a great way to make travel or supporting your retirement that little bit easier.

To become a resident in one of Southern Cross Care’s retirement living units, you need to pay an entry contribution. This is simply a payment made to Southern Cross Care for the right to live in the property of your choosing. For retirement living units, these contributions vary from $45,000-$170,000.

This payment gives you to the ‘licence to occupy’ the property, and your interest is secured by a lifetime lease. Whilst Southern Cross Care maintains the title ownership of the property, the Retirement Villages Act and the Residence Contract protect you tenure.

The rights and obligations of residents are clearly set out in the lease, and cannot be changed without each resident’s consent. This means that although the residents do not have the title to their unit, each resident will have the exclusive right to occupy the unit for their lifetime if they wish, subject only to certain exceptions set out in the Retirement Villages Act.

As the owner and manager, Southern Cross Care has a long-term interest in the ongoing success of all properties and as a result, is committed to maintaining a high standard of facilities and services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make variations/additions to our Villa?

The villas are architecturally designed to provide optimal living spaces and are supported by professional interior design expertise to ensure that the presentation suits most requirements. In the event that variations are required, they are to be costed and approved by both the prospective resident and Southern Cross Care prior to signing the contract. All variations must be paid for in full within two weeks of signing the contract, and are not refundable.

What are the services and benefits covered by the maintenance fee?

The maintenance fee is designed to simplify household budgeting by incorporating many of the typical household costs into one regular charge. Additionally, it also funds the ongoing operation of the facilities and services provided at site as detailed in your contract.

The fee is levied to meet the cost of:
