Ownership

Retirees living in the Koh Samui Retirement Village own their homes through an Ownership Lease available for 30 years.

This is a Lifetime Enjoyment Lease at the end of which our residents or family members receive a Full Refund of their initial investment.

The Lifetime Enjoyment Lease enables our residents to fully enjoy their homes, having all the rights and liberties they would at home, while maintaining the community spirit and lifestyle.

The lease expires after 30 years or upon Termination of Contract.

Upon expiry of the 30-year lease, an extension can be granted for an agreed number of years, under a property rental agreement, with rent payments made on a monthly or yearly basis by the residents wishing to continue their stay in our village.

Our residents receive a Full Payment Refund at the end of the 30-year lease, regardless of their decision to continue their stay with us.
