In September 2017, the Victorian Government supported a review of the Retirement Villages Act 1986 (RV Act). This was in response to a Parliamentary Inquiry.
The RV Act covers contractual arrangements between retirement village operators and their residents.
As part of the review, we invited the public to have their say in how the RV Act can better serve retirement village residents, as well as owners and operators. We want to see how the RV Act can better protect consumers, while also facilitating sector growth and innovation.
To kick-start the review, we released an Issues Paper outlining the key issues under consideration. This was the community’s chance to tell us what they believe is working well and what needs improving. Submissions responding to the Issues Paper have now closed.
We also held three community forums - in Geelong, Melbourne and Shepparton. These were a further opportunity for interested members of the community to contribute to the review.
