Let's Talk

Are you thinking of moving into a retirement village or rest home, or are you helping someone in your family with this?

The process is very different to buying a house, so it is important to get good legal advice on what this move will mean for you or your loved one. We can explain occupation licences and other documentation in plain terms, making it easy to understand.
