Zero Exit Fees

You pay zero ingoing fees at Lakeside Lifestyle Community. And unlike retirement villages that can charge 25% – 50% of your home’s selling price in outgoing costs, you pay zero exit fees should you or your family decide to sell your home.

If you are the recipient of a government pension, benefit or allowance, it’s possible that you could be eligible for rent assistance.
