Alternatively, your doctor or health centre can provide a referral to the ACAT nearest you.

What is Licence to Occupy?
Licence to Occupy or LTO, is a form of retirement living tenure that gives residents the right to occupy a residence without having ownership of it. This is most commonly used by ‘not-for-profit’ organisations. Property ownership in retirement villages comes under slightly different legislation to normal home ownership. Residents pay a lump sum amount to occupy the property. Costs such as stamp duty do not apply. Residents will then pay a weekly amount towards maintenance of the property but Wirraminna Care covers all Council Rates, water bills, repairs & maintenance costs and administration needed. Retention payments are taken from the lump sum paid at various times over the first 4 years. When a resident decides to leave the property, the lump sum, less any retention payments made, will be refunded to the resident.
