Loan Licence Agreement

BaptistCare offers a Loan Licence Agreement, where the price of your home is paid as an interest free loan to BaptistCare, giving you a guaranteed licence to live in your home for as long as you wish. A Loan Licence Agreement provides greater flexibility than traditional home ownership and offers the following benefits:

  • No Stamp Duty payable
  • No capital replacements unlike strata titled arrangements
  • No refurbishment or resale costs when you leave
  • Guaranteed fixed return (there is no capital loss or gain)
  • You can free up your cash for lifestyle choices
  • Full change of mind refund up to 90 days after moving in


There are just two costs associated with a Loan Licence Agreement:

  • Entry Payment, also known as an Ingoing Contribution, which guarantees you the right to live in your home.
  • A fortnightly fee, also known as a ‘recurrent fee’, that covers council and water rates, building insurance, maintenance both inside and outside your home, gardening, upkeep of any shared facilities and the cost of any village staff.
