What are the site fees?
Site Fees for Goulburn South Lifestyle Village are $100 per week. New residents entering the Goulburn South Lifestyle Village will be required to sign a Residential Tenancies Agreement which is designed to protect both the resident and the park manager. As a resident of the Goulburn South Lifestyle Village, your site fees cover the following items:
- Exclusive use of your home site. In other words, your block and its garden.
- Professional management of the Village.
- Upkeep and maintenance of all community facilities including BBQ’s.
- Council rates.
- Garbage collection.
Site fees do go up over time and price rises are covered by the Residential Tenancies Act.
What’s not covered?
- Maintenance of your home and garden. Of course we can assist in arranging this if you prefer.
- Insurance of your home. Again, we can assist if you desire.
- Utilities such as water, gas & electricity.
- Telephone, Foxtel and internet.
If you are a pensioner, you may be entitled to receive an extra payment from Centrelink under the ‘rent assistance scheme’. You may be able to receive as much as $52.00 per week assistance. The actual amount that you receive is determined by Centrelink. We advise that you contact Centrelink to obtain further information. So, if your site fees were $100.00, and you received the Rent Assistance subsidy of say $52.00, then your outgoings for site fees would be $48.00 per week.
