Many of your elderly clients are looking at alternatives to home ownership and residential care. Occupation Right Agreements have become the new catch phrase with developments
popping up all over the country.

When an elderly client couple arrives at your office all excited about the new development, they need your advice. “It is brand new, like living in a fancy hotel” says Mrs Elderly eagerly, “There are lawn bowls, a pool table, and a bar selling craft beer”, exclaims Mr Elderley, “There is no gardening to do, it was becoming far too much at home” continues Mrs Elderly excitedly “All our friends are there, we can go for coffee in the café”, she continues pointing at the glossy brochure. “We have discussed it with the kids” says Mr Elderly, “and they like the idea. Ummmmm, they don’t know about the family trust though.”

The clients are looking at an Occupation Right Agreement (“ORA”).

This paper will help to answer some of those important legal questions away from the glossy brochures, in plain English, so that you can advise your clients, in plain English.
