The Retirement Villages Act 1999 governs how an operator establishes and runs a retirement village.

Regular inspections are carried out on retirement villages to ensure they are complying with the Act. It is important that operators are aware of their obligations as penalties apply for those who do not comply.

This guide provides an overview for operators of their registration, financial, reporting and legal obligations. For specific legal advice please contact a solicitor.
