Tony Fortune - Partner June 10, 2016

“Many senior members of our society live in retirement villages.  Entering into an occupation licence for a villa or apartment in a retirement village is very different from ownership of a house or town house and involves completely different documentation.  We specialise in assisting people who are contemplating moving into a retirement village to identify and understand the issues that need to be considered with the licence for each particular village.”
