Function of Government

The role of government is to create an environment for commerce to function whilst at the same time protecting retirees and particularly vulnerable retirees from both financial and emotional harm emanating from that function.

The Victorian Retirement Villages Act 1986 provides the environment for commerce to function but fails to fully protect retirees from financial and emotional harm as a result of it.

The Victorian legislative definition of a retirement village in demanding the payment of an 'in-going' amount without the transfer of property ownership is a major contributor to that financial and emotional harm suffered by retirees.

Access to Justice and Enforcement of the Law

Any retirement village reforms require two major objectives. ACCESS TO JUSTICE & ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.

If access to justice is simple & affordable and laws are enforced then bad operators/practices will be forced out of the industry.
