RETIREMENT VILLAGES ACT 1999 - SECT 25
Inconsistency between village contract and disclosure statement
(1) To the extent that any term in a village contract is inconsistent, to the
detriment of the resident, with the information contained in the
disclosure statement provided to the resident concerned, the contract is to be
construed (as far as is practicable) as if it contained the information in the
statement instead of the inconsistent term, unless the inconsistent term is a
term of a standard contract prescribed under section 43.
(2) If there is a
dispute between a resident of a retirement village and the operator of the
village as to whether there is an inconsistency referred to in subsection (1),
the resident concerned may apply to the Tribunal for (and the Tribunal may
make) an order determining the dispute.
(3) Any such order is to specify the
way in which the contract concerned is to be construed.
