Seek advice before you sign a contract.
We will ask you to send us the draft retirement village contract a few days before your consultation.
Our fixed fee covers reading your contract prior to your consultation and meeting with you for up to 45 minutes to give you general and preliminary verbal advice in relation to your contract.
Additional charges may apply for complex contracts. Where possible we will advise you in advance of the consultation.
Following the consultation we will offer you a written quote for any further service you may require, including:
Thank you. The discussion was very informative and appreciated. We will be acting on the advice.
Michael, thank you for your presentation on Retirement Housing Options to the [client] yesterday. The feedback from the attendees was most positive and all involved reported they had learned some important information.
Thanks to you [Michael] and Lucy, our experience with Birman and Ride was a rewarding and pleasurable one.
Dear Michael, Thank you very much for the information. Thank you for all you have done and I have enjoyed our association.
I want to thank you and your dear helpers – especially Tobias for all you have done for us. We all understand the Law better and have a greater appreciation of how it protects us all.
When your doctor refers you for blood tests or x-rays, chances are he or she will do so by handing you a convenient pre-printed form listing the locations of clinics points where these services are available, and with a telephone number for you to call to make an appointment. Chances are that the referral form that you receive will have been supplied to your GP by a private pathology or radiology company keen for your business. What your GP may not mention is that: the service that you require is usually offered by a number of competing providers apart from the company suggested on your referral form; you can generally use your referral form at any provider – even if it is not named on the form; all providers receive substantial subsidies from Medicare; some bulk bill; others do not. There can be significant differences in the fees charged by different providers after your Medicare rebate. In some cases, you can save hundreds of dollars simply by Googling and shopping around before making an appointment.
Scammers will try anything to get your attention and attempt to fool you into providing them access to your personal or financial information. Lately we have seen an increase in the number of reported phone scams. These include calls from fraudsters claiming to be from your bank or other legitimate organisations such as your software and service provider. If you’re unsure, do not provide any information or grant them remote access to your computer! To confirm the legitimacy of the call, ask for a reference number and call back on a trusted number (ie. use phone book).

Unsolicited calls are frustrating at the best of times. You can reduce the frequency of these calls by registering your telephone number on the Australia Government’s ‘Do Not Call’ Register.
