The Hills Kingfisher Estate
It is situated in the suburb of Hillcrest in the upper highway area of Durban. The Estate comprises of 29 superbly appointed one bedroom units, with or without lofts. Each resident is the holder of a Life Right Agreement that is governed in terms of the Housing Development Scheme for Retired Persons Act No. 65 of 1988.
A major benefit of the Life Right Agreement is that no Transfer Duties are payable on purchase. This is because the Title Deeds and the Agreement remain the property of the Kloof Rest Home Association with no transfer of ownership registered at the Deeds Office.
The administration of the Estate is however, very much the responsibility of the Management Association members who elect a committee to set levies and rules by which the development is managed.
The monthly levy currently covers annual rates, audit fees, insurance of all land and buildings (including geyser cover), perimeter and home security, all water costs, all external common property upkeep costs including lighting,
garden maintenance, wages, uniforms, sewage treatment and waste removal. Daily clinic services are also provided within the levy by the friendly, qualified nurses that manage Kloof Hill Caring, a community-based rental care aid
organisation situated on site. Residents can enjoy the use of the superbly stocked library in Kloof Hill Caring offices.
Each resident is responsible for the internal maintenance and upkeep of their unit, as well as their own householder insurance, telephone and electricity costs.
The Management Association Committee have an established set of Conduct Rules. These seek to provide an atmosphere of harmonious, contented living through the provision of simple behavioural guidelines.
The vision of The Hills Retirement Community is to enhance the well-being of older persons in our community by
providing affordable accommodation that offers quality, professional care for all aspects of the aging process, in an
environment that protects self-dignity and promotes fulfilment of life. Our Mission Statement is Caring with Integrity and Compassion.
