Review of the Retirement Villages Act 1999

New legislation introduced

Find out about the Housing Legislation (Building Better Futures) Amendment Bill 2017 introduced into Queensland Parliament.


There are currently 315 retirement villages schemes registered in Queensland accommodating approximately 42,000 Queenslanders.

The government has identified the need to ensure that seniors living in retirement villages are adequately protected when entering, living in and leaving villages by promoting fair and transparent relationships between operators and residents.

The Review of the Retirement Villages Act 1999 (PDF, 408KB) is part of the Queensland Government's commitment to the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017-2027.

The Queensland Housing Strategy redefines how the Queensland Government will deliver housing to support urban renewal, generate new jobs, provide affordable housing and drive innovative housing design that responds to contemporary housing needs.
It also ensures those most in need are supported by a safety net of targeted early interventions, flexible packages of support, supportive social housing, and genuine wraparound services.
By creating well-lit housing pathways, we will promote growth, enable prosperity, create connections and instil confidence, providing every Queenslander with the opportunity to fully participate in social and economic life.
