ISBN: 9780455231280.

Retirement Village Law in NSW guides practitioners advising those who are resident in, or considering residency in, retirement villages and those moving out of this accommodation, including into higher care. It consolidates the interconnected legislation and illuminates its meaning with court and tribunal decisions which have interpreted the provision in practice.

This book draws together the main sources of law governing the day to day operation of retirement villages. The main pieces of legislation in this area of legal practice are the Retirement Village Act 1999 and Retirement Village Regulations 2009 and their inter-relationship with the Real Property Act, Residential Tenancies Act, Strata Schemes Management Act and the Aged Care Act (Cth).

The body of law is also affected by decisions of the Consumer Trader and Tenancy Tribunal (NSW).  With the passage of time, there is now a substantial body of law based on CTTT’s decisions and related judgments of the NSW District Court, Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, especially on how to conduct Tribunal cases.
