“Retirement Living Options”: Learn about key features of retirement villages and manufactured home parks/‘over 50’s resorts’ in a free session presented by one of our PAVIL lawyers. Come along for a chat and learn about issues to consider before making the big decision about where you will live in retirement.
The talk will be presented by a lawyer from Caxton Legal Centre’s Park and Village Information Link (PAVIL). PAVIL is a statewide service dedicated to providing legal advice and information to residents (and prospective residents) of retirement villages and manufactured home parks in Queensland.
Each session lasts for approximately one hour, and will provide free legal information about retirement living options in Queensland. While many retirement living options will be discussed, the focus of our talk will be on common issues that arise for residents of manufactured home parks and retirement villages. Attendees can expect to learn about documents and contracts, fees and charges, maintenance responsibilities, and questions to ask before signing on the dotted line.
The talk is aimed at ensuring prospective residents leave with a better understanding of the difference between a retirement village and manufactured home park as well as the ability to make better enquiries about what will suit their needs.
For those who would like specific legal advice about retirement living, we are also offering free legal advice appointments after the sessions. Advice is by appointment only and individuals will need to contact us to book beforehand.
