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 have at this point.

The ownership works differently as you are purchasing ownership rights to live in the unit. As a resident you will receive the benefit of services which the village has to offer.

The documents you are presented with can be quite overwhelming. They are very lengthy and it can be difficult 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 documents and answer any questions you may have.

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

This is a good time to revisit your Will and Powers of Attorney. This is often a requirement of the Village. Our team are happy to prepare these for you.
