(1) If residential premises in a retirement village are, otherwise than as a result of a breach of a village contract, destroyed or rendered wholly or partly uninhabitable or cease to be lawfully usable for the purpose of a residence or are appropriated or acquired by any authority by compulsory process, the recurrent charges payable by the resident of the premises abate accordingly.

(a) are not to abate, or
(b) are to abate to the extent specified in the order from the date so specified.
