The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (the Act), its regulations and the Code of Practice protect the interests of residents and intended residents of retirement villages. It also defines the obligations of retirement village operators. For further information please refer to the Commission for Financial Capability website by clicking here.

The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (the Act) requires, with a few exceptions, that every retirement village must be registered and that the operator of a registered retirement village must appoint a statutory supervisor. Fairview is a registered retirement village and has appointed Covenant Trustee Services Limited (Covenant) as their statutory supervisor. By way of an agreement called a Deed of Supervision, Covenant’s role is to financially monitor the village and ensure it operates to protect your rights as residents in accordance with the Act. This gives incoming residents peace of mind and security under the law.

Simply write to the village manager advising that you wish to terminate your Occupation Right Agreement (ORA) and complete a termination form giving a minimum of one months notice.

Once we receive the signed termination advice, Fairview will put in place a refurbishment plan and actively market to re-license your dwelling. Following the re-licensing and occupation of the dwelling you will be refunded the original purchase price less the Village Contribution and any other amounts owing by the resident.

No, Fairview is responsible for all refurbishment costs and you are only responsible for any damage beyond fair wear and tear and any agreed reinstatement costs.
