How does government legislation protect the rights of village residents?
Retirement village legislation regulates the retirement village industry and ensures that residents of retirement villages have rights specifically pertaining to them. Legislation is state enacted and you should discuss with your solicitor the specific provisions applicable in your state. Areas of interest include: regulation of service fees, termination arrangements, methods of dispute resolution and the right to be actively involved in the management of the village. Compliance with legislation is a pre-requisite for accreditation.
