Gilead is only an hours drive from the city of Sydney, just 58 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district.  The suburb Gilead officially falls in the local government area of the City of Campbelltown which is part of the Macarthur region.

What are your exit fees?

We offer a deferred management fee with our properties.  That is what is called an “exit fee” which is paid when someone permanently vacates the village. This is calculated as a percentage of the ingoing contribution and is paid on a sliding scale based on how long someone has resided in the village.

At Mount Gilead Estate the exit fees are calculated as follows and capped at 30% of ingoing fees.

  • First Year -10%
  • Second Year – an additional 10%, bringing the total to 20%
  • Third Year – an additional 10%, bringing the total to 30%

Please note that for part-year periods, the fee is calculated on a pro-rata basis reflecting the number of days in that year that our residents have occupied their homes.  See more on our fees page.  Or learn more about retirement village fees.

Do you keep capital gains in addition to your exit fees?

We do not retain additional capital gains when you sell your retirement village home on top of the deferred management fee payable.  The deferred management fee is an exit fee that is payable based off a percentage of the sale price of your retirement home when you exit the village.  Some over 55s villages will retain a percentage of the capital gains in addition to a capped exit fee.  We don’t do that. 

Our exit fees are based on a sliding scale from 10%-30% of the sale price of your retirement home, depending on how long you have lived in the village.  You will never pay more than 30% of the sale price as an exit fee, no matter how long you have lived here.  Read more about our fees here.

Can I make changes to my property if it hasn’t been built yet?

Yes, you can make minor changes to your home if it hasn’t been built yet.  Changes must be within reason, and you will have to pay for any additional costs over and above the standard fit-out.
