Retirement Village Law in NSW guides practitioners advising those who are resident in, or considering residency in, retirement villages and those moving out of this accommodation, including into higher care. It analyses the interconnected legislation and illuminates its meaning with court and tribunal decisions which have interpreted the provisions in practice.

This book draws together the main sources of law governing the day-to-day operation of retirement villages. This centres on the Retirement Villages Act 1999 and Retirement Villages Regulation 2009 and their inter-relationship with the Real Property Act 1990, Residential Tenancies Act, 2010 Strata Schemes Management Act 1996 and the Aged Care Act 1997 (Cth).

These legislative provisions are also affected by decisions of the Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal (NSW). With the passage of time, there is now a substantial body of case law deriving from the Tribunal''s decisions and related judgments of the NSW District Court, Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. This includes guidance on how to conduct Tribunal cases and how to pursue appeals from, or reviews of, Tribunal decisions.
