Applicants must undergo a criminal history check to confirm their suitability. The criminal history check applies to each person who appears on the application form. The fee applies to all applications and renewal notices.
If you have had a licence granted or renewed by the agency in the last 6 months, it may not be deemed necessary to have another criminal history check completed, however all clients should pay the fee at the time of lodgement. If it is determined that criminal history check is not required, the fee will be refunded.
As contracts are often complex, you, as a prospective operator, are strongly urged to consult professional advisers regarding the scheme documentation.
You must produce and issue a Village Comparison Document (VCD), Prospective Costs Document (PCD) and resident contract to prospective residents.
Contractual relations between you, as the scheme operator, and the resident may differ from each village and include a number of different provisions and services.
