If you are thinking of retiring or have retired and are going over your options for the next stage in your life, you may have considered taking up residence in one of the Central Coast's many retirement villages. This is can be for many reasons, such as:
- You could use some assisted care
- You simply want to downsize
- You would like to socialize with more people at a similar stage of life.
There are many retirement villages with various levels of services and care available.
However, it is a huge decision to leave the security of your home and take up residence in an unfamiliar environment. You cannot afford to make a mistake, so it is crucial to have clear legal advice about the ramifications of any residential contract you sign along with any other agreements. Even though the Retirement Villages Act provides you with a lot of protection, there are still some traps for the unprepared or unwary.
Local knowledge is a key issue in this regard, and at David Zammit & Associates we have been practicing in this area of the law for over twenty years. David acts for a local retirement village and has extensive knowledge of the Retirement Villages Act and knows what you need to look out for.
