Steps to Retirement Living

Find a retirement living community and home based on what’s right for you in terms of location, size, aspect and price. Ask the team on the ground as many questions as you would like. This is a big decision, and we’re here to help.

Once you’ve decided on a home, you reserve it with a fully refundable reservation fee (minus retain legal costs). Following this you will receive the agreement. There is a 21 day cooling off period so you have time to review the agreement, if you choose not to proceed, your reservation fee will be refunded. No questions asked.

We strongly encourage that you seek advice from a solicitor and/or financial planner before signing the agreement. It is important that you feel totally comfortable about the arrangements and, as such, VMCH urges you to discuss it with friends, family and professional advisors.

You will have an additional three-day cooling off period at this point. Should you change your mind, your deposit will be refunded in full, and the agreements terminated.

There is usually a few months between reservation and settlement, during which the move is organised. Our staff are available and experienced in supporting you during this transition. The balance of the agreed sale price is payable on settlement, after which you can begin living in your new home.
