Moving Into A Retirement Village Can Be A Stressful Experience

The whole process can seem very overwhelming. Understandably you may have many questions, like: Is living in a retirement village different to living in a house? What happens if I change my mind?

It is crucial to have a legal advisor you can trust to ask all of these questions and feel confident that you are making the right move for yourself and not because others want you to move. Collins & May will help support you in making the right decision and make this process simple for you.

Where To Begin?

Once you’ve been offered a place at a retirement village, you’ll be given some paperwork to look over and fill out. We’re here to help you with any questions you might have at this point.

The ownership works differently from what you may be used to as you are purchasing ownership rights to live in the unit. As a resident, you will receive the benefit of services that the village offers.

The documents you are presented with can be quite overwhelming. They are very lengthy, and it can be challenging to work out what points you need to be concerned with. It is our role to review all of the documents in detail. We will report to you simply so you understand what you are signing and meet with you to go through the papers and answer any questions you may have.

If you own a home, we can assist with the sale process and give you advice to make sure that the transition goes smoothly.

This is an excellent time to revisit your Will and Powers of Attorney, which is often a requirement of the village.
