How it Works

Allswell Communities offer a selection of well priced, architecturally designed, low maintenance homes set within facilities-rich communities of like-minded people.

We enable you to own your own home whilst leasing the land to you for a ongoing site rental fee. In many cases  your site rental fee may be subsidised by a Government Pensioner Rent Assistance payment*, making your living costs more affordable. Importantly, you still own your own home and can sell it or transfer it to a family member.

*If you are eligible for government subsidies please refer to www.humanservices.gov.au/rentassistance.
