Q. What is a Land Lease Community?

Karalta Court is a land lease community where you own the home but lease the land on which the home sits from the park operator. You pay site fees (rent) for the right to occupy the site. Since you own your own home, you can live with privacy, independence and control.

What’s more, once you have bought the home you have access to Karalta Court facilities including swimming pool, laundry and well maintained gardens.
