Prices may vary according to individual cottage improvements

Tenancy Rights : how they work

A resident's right to remain in the accommodation depends on health and ability. When a resident vacates his/her unit, it is refurbished at the resident's cost and resold. A percentage of that new selling price is refunded to the resident. The value of the unit is market related and generally goes up in price each year. Repayment of Tenancy Rights to the resident is based on a sliding scale:
95% refund in first 6 months,
90% refund 7-12 months,
85% refund 13-24 months,
80% refund 25-36 months,
70% refund 37-48 months,
60% refund 49-60 months and
50% refund 61 months onwards
