Transparent & simple
We know that buying a retirement property is a significant financial investment for your future. That’s why at Santhem Residences, we keep our costs transparent, straightforward and simple.
When you purchase your luxury retirement property, we’ll explain your monthly costs, and those you can expect to pay in the future. No unexpected extras, no unwanted surprises – just finances you can plan for, today and tomorrow.
The right payment plan for you
With the flexibility to choose from two payment plans, you’re free to finance your new Santhem Residences home your way. Whichever option you choose, you’ll enjoy the same exclusive amenities and service.
Our payment plans cover two charges: your Monthly Management Fee, payable throughout your ownership, and your Deferred Management fee, paid only when the property is sold. You simply choose which of our two payment plans works best for your lifestyle.
