Victorians can now have their say on retirement village laws as part of a review of the Retirement Villages Act 1986.
The review aims to update laws about retirement villages to further protect consumers and encourage growth and innovation in the sector.
Consumer Affairs Victoria will hold community consultation sessions during November at Shepparton, Geelong and Melbourne.
The review is being conducted in response to the Parliamentary Inquiry into the Retirement Housing Sector and aims to address concerns around:
- contractual agreements
- disclosure of fees and charges
- obligations for repairs and maintenance
- rights and obligations when selling a village unit.
