Review of the Retirement Villages Act 1986 - Public consultation

Skip listen and sharing tools

Background  

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 invite the public to have their say on how the RV Act can better serve retirement village residents, as well as owners and operators. Our purpose is to look at how the RV Act could better protect consumers, while also facilitating sector growth and innovation. 

Public consultation 

To kick-start the review, we have released an Issues Paper outlining the key issues under consideration. This is your chance to tell us what you believe is working well and what needs improving. Submissions are now open and will close on Friday 6 December 2019.
 
You can submit feedback at Engage Victoria or by post:
 
Attn: Retirement Villages Act Review

As part of our Issues Paper consultation, we are running three community forums. These provide a further opportunity for the community to contribute to the review.
