Planning For Your Future

At Navigate Law we always recommend seeking the advice of an experienced lawyer prior to signing any documents regarding occupation. This will allow you to make decisions that will suit your ideal retirement situation and to fully understand any ongoing costs as well as the costs of entry and exit from the village arrangement that you are signing into.
There are several ways for people to own or occupy premises in a retirement village. People often occupy retirement residences under long-term leases or residency contracts (licences), through strata title ownership (freehold), or in a manufactured home community.
We understand that moving into a retirement residence can be a daunting time, and with so many options to choose from, it can also be confusing! Let Navigate Law guide you and help to take some of this stress away. We can offer you comfort and peace of mind by explaining exactly what your rights, obligations and costs are.
"Thank you Lauren. We are so excited and so thankful to you for your marvellous work. You don't forget one little thing. Much appreciated."
