From abuse of a Power of Attorney to the legal complexities of retirement village licences and granny-flat agreements, many Australians of advancing years face new and challenging problems. Sometimes a little advice is all that is required to give you the comfort you know where you stand. Sometimes you need someone to go in to bat for you. We’re here to help with whatever you face.
Treloar & Treloar can advise on all contracts, such as licences to occupy a unit at a lifestyle village or granny-flat agreements, so you can make an informed decision with peace of mind. If you are having second thoughts about something you signed, we can advise on your cooling-off rights or how to terminate the contract.
We can also advise attorneys and administrators, who must know the limits of their authority and the principles they must uphold. All too often we hear of well-meaning professionals or family members giving advice which results in a breach of duty and legal liability. With a little advice, attorneys and administrators can act with confidence knowing they are doing the right thing.
If you feel your rights to make your own decisions are under threat, we may be able to help you, whether by negotiating with others involved or by representing you in Court or before SACAT (formerly the Guardianship Board).
If you are worried an attorney or administrator is abusing the authority and trust placed in them, Treloar & Treloar can help to hold them to account and to undo the damage.
For over 90 years Treloar & Treloar have provided timely advice at a reasonable price to all South Australians. Because of our specialist knowledge in matters relating to aged care, agency and equity, we are well-placed to help you.
