New-look Retirement Villages GuidePosted to Financial Capability Retirement Section on 04-07-2016
A new, improved guide is available for people who are considering moving into a retirement village and want to know more.
Buying into a village is different from buying a house. It can be complex and villages vary in their accommodation, support, management, legal and financial structures.
The booklet “Thinking of living in a retirement village?” was produced by the Commission and contains important information, replacing an earlier version.
Troy Churton, national manager retirement villages, said: “We have revised the booklet to emphasise important personal, legal and financial implications of choosing to become a resident.
“We also wanted to make the content more appealing and easier to understand for intending residents, their families and anyone else who is interested in finding out more.”
