Special Features
Lupton Village is set in sunny, north facing grounds with mature trees and established gardens. A regular bus services passes at the gate and a local shopping centre including supermarket and post office are a short walk for those more active residents who like to leave the car at home!

In addition to the rental Units, the Trust also offers Occupational Right Agreement Units (for 'purchase') at the Lupton Village. (ORA)

As a charity, the Trust makes several favourable concessions from the normal industry standards, especially with respect to it's Occupational Rights Units.

For example, The Trust guarantees that it will purchase a departing Resident’s interest in their ORA Unit within an agreed timeframe.

Furthermore, the ORA Weekly Levy stops at the end of the two month Notice Period (where applicable) even if the Unit is not yet on-sold and continues to be vacant.

These two points are significant because they bring clarity and certainty to the financial obligations of ORA residents, especially when they leave.

In addition, any operating surplus made by the Trust is reinvested into the Villages as opposed to paid out in dividends to shareholders.

The Trust endeavours to provide peace of mind, space and security, and its strong history in the retirement village industry allows residents to have trust in the manner in which their agreement will be honoured.
