Retirement village conveyancing


Retirement village conveyancing

Retirement village contracts are not the same as ordinary residential property contracts. Retirement village legislation differs from standard property law and can be complexed and confusing.

There are several ways for people to own or occupy premises in a retirement village. Most commonly people occupy retirement villages:

  • Through buying the freehold title to a unit.
  • Through strata title ownership.
  • Leasing the unit under a long term lease or holding a license to occupy the unit.
