Residential Tenancy Within Retirement Villages

Victoria is lagging behind New South Wales in regard to a residential tenancy agreement within retirement villages.

The Victorian legislation defines the ingoing payment by 'whether in a lump sum or by instalments but does not include rent', accommodation by way of a residential tenancy cannot be offered by the operator.

NSW legislation does not include the phrase 'but does not include rent' thereby allowing an operator to provide accommodation in a defined retirement village by way of a residential tenancy agreement.

There has been long term grass roots advocacy in Victoria for an amendment to the legislation.
