Elder Law and Retirement Village Leases and Service Contracts

There are several ways for people to own or occupy premises in a retirement village or aged care facility. You can enter a Retirement Village either under long-term lease, under license or by way of strata title ownership.

Elder Law Retirement

Under a long-term lease, the occupier is entitled to live in the property for a period of time pursuant to the lease (most commonly 99 years). The Retirement Village owner maintains ownership of the property but the lease is registered in the occupier’s name providing security of tenure. Beyond the lease agreement, a ‘service agreement’ sets out the terms and conditions regarding the services provided.

A substantial ingoing contribution fee is required under this set up in addition to ongoing recurrent charges each week.
