Retire Ready: Legal Tips
Free expert information for seniors who are trying to decide the best retirement living option for their circumstances will be available in a special information session hosted by Retire Australia’s The Verge at Burleigh Heads on Tuesday, April 9.
The Retire Ready: Legal Tips session will be held at 10am in The Verge Sales Suite at Burleigh Golf Club and features retirement legal specialist Danielle Lim, principal of DSL Law, who will share her top tips for making a wise move into retirement living.
RetireAustralia Development Manager Judi Hutchison said the Retire Ready information session was designed to demystify the buying process for retirement living and give seniors and their families access to expert advice at no cost.
“Choosing the retirement living option that’s best for you is an important decision but it can be overwhelming as there are a wide range of options available,” Ms Hutchinson said.
“Research is a crucial part of the process and it’s important to seek advice from the experts. RetireAustralia’s information sessions are just one of the ways we help seniors find the home and the lifestyle that’s right for them.
“Anyone interested in retirement living is invited to attend and get some free tips from one of Queensland’s sought-after legal experts.”
Ms Lim has spent many years in the seniors living sector and regularly speaks at industry events and seminars on the topic.
She said new laws that started rolling out from February 1 were aimed at improving outcomes for retirement village residents and potential residents.
“People often focus on the process at the beginning when they’re choosing a village and don’t pay enough attention to the things that will affect them both while living within the village and when they leave,” Ms Lim said.
“As much as it would be great to compare apples with apples, retirement villages can be very different.
“Added to this, the personal circumstances of buyers can vary wildly – there’s really no cookie cutter approach, every situation is unique.”
The free Retire Ready: Legal Tips event will be held at The Verge Sales Suite at Burleigh Golf Club, 114 Albion Avenue, Miami. Places are limited and RSVP is essential by visiting the website at www.thevergeburleigh.com.au.
