All you need to know about owning a property at an Opus Retirement Village
need to know
Whether you are moving to an Opus later living community for the beautiful environment, security, fantastic facilities or care and support, we understand that any move, especially in later life, is a big step. You will also want to fully understand everything that owning a property at Opus entails.
All Opus properties are sold on a leasehold basis, with the term of the lease being 999-years or balance thereof. This approach ensures continuity of all services and that the buildings, estate and environment are maintained to impeccable standards at all times. The lease is a legal document that sets out your responsibilities as the lessee (owner of the property) and those of Opus as the freeholder and landlord. Copies of the lease are available upon request and your solicitor will advise on your obligations as a leaseholder.
One of the great benefits of owning a property within an Opus complete later living retirement community is the range of communal facilities and support services dedicated to making life more enjoyable. Village Apartment and Village Suite owners pay a service charge to ensure all buildings, communal areas, gardens and facilities are maintained to the very highest standard. The service charge is levied on a per-property basis (not per-person) and is the same amount for each property.
Community Facilities Fee
Opus make a substantial investment in providing a luxury village environment with extensive and superior communal facilities for all residents to enjoy. We seek a return on this investment over the lifetime of the development through the Community Facilities Fee. Without this fee, Opus would not be able to provide such extensive facilities.
