Retirement Villages Ltd was featured in a BBC consumer affairs programme on the retirement sector this evening (04/03/11). We were responding to a story on exit fees and were able to explain our village model, our services and how funding for this lifestyle proposition is structured in comparison to other retirement providers.
Chief executive Jon Gooding explained he would support any attempts to regulate the sector more stringently to make it more transparent.
We fully support the view that when planning to move into a retirement development people should ensure they are fully aware of all the facts before making a purchasing decision.
If you would like answers to specific issues raised in the programme, please do not hesitate to contact Jon Gooding, Chief Executive, who will be happy to talk to you in person – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
