Unit Upgrades and Refurbishments

When purchasing, or renting, a unit at Haven Village, Haven Village Trust will ensure that it upholds to a certain standard before releasing occupation. As such, depending on how recently a unit was upgraded, when you purchase the life rights to a unit, the unit will be upgraded to our specifications. You will have your own choice of tiles and/or carpets, paint colours, etc. You will be a part of the process to ensure the unit becomes the home you’ve always imagined.

When rental units are still in a good condition when occupation changes, units will be refurbished to maintain the Haven Village Trust standard.
