The company has 36 members. Twelve are directors, twelve are resident representatives, six are honorary members who have served the company for many years and six are community members, none of whom are involved in the day to day running of the Estate.

The residents elect representatives to The Association of Residents Committee (AOR), which meets regularly with management for effective two-way communication. The residents are represented on the Board by four Resident Directors, all of whom have full voting rights.

None of the above receive any remuneration whatsoever.

Life Rights is a widely practiced and well recognised retirement housing model worldwide. A Life Right means that you are buying the right to live in a unit – usually with your spouse or partner – for the rest of your lives. It is a real right, giving security of tenure for life.

• The surviving spouse or partner’s Life Right is relinquished when he/she moves off the Estate or passes away.
• On the resale of your unit, the percentage refunded is calculated on a sliding scale, dependent upon the period of occupancy.
• If you move to our care facility on the Estate, a percentage of the original purchase price is used to fund frail care costs when your unit is resold. The refunded portion left with Randjes Estate earns interest.
Consult the detailed explanation of the Life Rights model on the website.

We are situated in Randjeslaagte Road, Highlands North, south of Balfour Park Shopping Centre and a few minutes from the main arterial roads to Eastgate, Rosebank, Melrose Arch, Sandton, Norwood, OR Tambo International Airport, the N3, N1 and M1.

When you are at the top of the waiting list and you are not ready to accept the unit offered, you remain AT THE TOP OF THE LIST until a unit of your choice becomes available. Some units are more popular than others and thus there can be longer waiting periods for these units, e.g. two bedroom small and large cottages with garages.

As a non-profit organisation we do not have shareholders that receive dividends, and we do not pay income tax on any surpluses that might be earned, these savings are offset against the running expenses. We have a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) status.

Security is all-important to us. Entry onto and exit from the Estate is strictly controlled. Sophisticated and up to date technology is used to access and exit the estate, with residents responsible for allowing their visitors entry and exit. Regular patrols take place 24/7.
