Event 180515: Free Community Legal Information Session – Retirement Living – Tuesday 15th May

Free Community Legal Information Session


 TUESDAY 15 MAY 2018

 “Retirement Living Options” talk

11.00am – 12.30pm

Roma Library

38-44 Hawthorne Street, Roma

 Legal advice appointments

(for residents of retirement villages or manufactured home parks)

2.00 – 4.00pm


96 Arthur Street, Roma

Bookings are essential!

“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.

Some flyers setting out the details of the event is attached for your information. Please feel free to share the event on your website and/or distribute this to your networks if possible.

Robot Lawyers



Robot Lawyers is a free service for people pleading guilty to minor traffic or criminal charges and who cannot afford a lawyer or access legal services at court.

Robot Lawyers acts as a client’s virtual assistant and assists them in telling their story clearly, in a stressful court setting.

During the development of Robot Lawyers we had a number of discussions with those working in the community sector. The feedback indicated that the service would be very useful in the CLC setting, particularly where CLCs don’t have the resources to represent clients in court for minor driving and criminal charges. It was said that the Robot Lawyers questionnaire could be filled out with the client, while present at the CLC, then emailed and printed at the CLC. This will overcome some of the limitations inherent in a process like Robot Lawyers (i.e. the need for internet access and a printer).
