Are there hidden costs to living at Lightsview?

We are looking at moving to Adelaide and wondering what Lightsview is like? There's lots of positive reviews about the public spaces/community spirit but on their Facebook page someone mentioned there are significant costs involved after buying into the area- can anyone fill me in on these?

Hi, i have built 2 houses in lightsview and lived in one.

There are no 'hidden' costs in Lightsview. If you decide to build a home there you will be up for a one off charge of $4500. This cost is associated with the connection of recycled water. Recycled water is quite an exclusive thing and only done in a few suburbs. It is great because recycled water is basically free and is used for watering gardens, toilets and the laundry applainces hence; long term you save money. The supply charge is about $20 a quarter.
The only downside to this $4500 connection fee is the bank will not lend you the money for the connection so you may have to come up with a slightly larger deposit OR have your mortgage broker negotiate with the bank.

You will make money on the value of your home by building in lightsview and you will save a lot of money on stamp duty when purchasing land only.
