VIC Consumer Affairs can’t assist village investors

Published on

The 13 investors in Stephen Snowden’s 24 ILU Berkeley Living Retirement Village at Patterson Lakes claim they have received no rent for 4 years from the units they own in the village even though Berkeley Living continues to accept new tenants. They state they have been to VIC Consumer Affairs who claim there is no role for them as long as residents are not being unduly treated. Snowden’s Cambridge Aged Care has had its five facilities placed in receivership and he is being pursued by Westpac and the ATO for over $7M. However he still manages the village and collects the weekly fees. The investors in the individual ILUs in the meantime have had to pay the water rates, with no legal solution available.
