This submission has been developed with the assistance of our Tasmanian Policy Advisory Group (TasPAG) to ensure it reflects the views of older Tasmanians and is based on our existing advocacy on retirement village legislation in other states and territories.

Summary
This submission has been developed with the assistance of our Tasmanian Policy Advisory Group (TasPAG) to ensure it reflects the views of older Tasmanians and is based on our existing advocacy on retirement village legislation in other states and territories. Given Tasmania has a significant older population, there is a strong need for affordable accommodation options for seniors. Retirement Villages have the potential to provide an important part of the housing mix but only if they ensure that current and future residents’ rights are protected. NSA promotes a buyer beware approach to retirement villages given the large amount of negative feedback we receive from members and the wider community.
