9.2.5 Special Residence - Assessment Rules

Document

This section demonstrates whether a person residing in a special residence should be considered to be a homeowner or non-homeowner and it also provides additional assessment rules for variations on these residences.


According to subsection 5MC(2) of the VEA a special residence is:

  • a retirement village; or
  • a granny flat; or
  • a sale leaseback home.

 

 

A person is a homeowner if he or she has a right or interest, which gives reasonable security of tenure in the principal home. A person is also considered to be a homeowner if they have sold their home in the previous 12 months and intend to use part or all of the proceeds to purchase another home.
