No deposit is required for your purchase at EdenLea. You retain all of your funds until you are ready to finalise your purchase and move in.
There are no amounts for you to pay for Stamp Duty. A charge of $1,691.50 is presently made to cover additional costs including titles office registration fees, villa survey costs, and legal fees, among others.
Each purchase of a villa will include new carpet. This will either have been installed prior to your purchase or we will provide you with an allowance for new carpet.
If you are choosing your new carpet we will install this as soon as your purchase is finalised. If you wish to have the carpet laid prior to settlement so that you can move in directly payment is made, you can purchase your carpet from a local supplier and we will reimburse you with the allowance when you move in.
Holding Deposit Offer
You are welcome to make use of our offer to hold your chosen villa* while you sell your home. A $2,000 deposit will give you a 35 day period to organise a sale.If you obtain a contract during these 35 days, the holding period will be extended a further 30 days to allow for your settlement.
Your deposit will be held in trust with Minter Ellison Lawyers and will be refunded in full if you change your mind during the holding period, or if you are unable to sell your home.
*This optional holding deposit offer may not be available for securing all villas currently for sale. Please discuss with our sales staff which villas are available on holding deposit.
Your monthly contribution is $515 for the year to June 2020. All of this charge is used to provide services to village residents including in general terms, our village bus, emergency call service, council charges, insurance on village buildings, as well as most of the maintenance of those buildings including repairs and external painting, and the gardening of village common areas including residents’ front gardens.

Other Ongoing Costs
You will be responsible for contents insurance, some internal maintenance of your villa, rear garden maintenance, and the costs of keeping a landline telephone service etc.
When you eventually sell your villa an exit fee will be charged against its value. The Village Owner uses this fee to cover, among other items, the cost of replacing equipment and infrastructure such as the village bus, some staff subsidies, and the costs of developing and continually improving EdenLea.
The minimum amount of the exit fee is 8% of the resale price. 3% is then accrued from year two through to year ten. If you leave EdenLea part of the way through the year you will only be charged for part of that year’s fee.
When you move into EdenLea your home will be freshly painted, cleaned, and have new carpets. When you sell your villa at EdenLea we will share with you the costs of reinstating the villa to the same standard.
