"What do we like best? The peace and tranquility - the beautiful country views that we look on from our Unit and the neighbours around us in the village."

"It's great that you can rent or buy in this village and there are no outside maintenance matters to deal with!"

Special Features
The Wellsford Masonic Village is close to the Wellsford's main street shopping area and a first class medical centre. There is good parking for visitors and only an hour from Auckland, Wellsford is a great location for those wanting a 'rural feel' close to amenities.

In additional to rental units, the Trust also offers Occupation Right Agreements (for 'purchase') at the Wellsford 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 ORA Resident’s interest in their 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.
