Q: Hi, my mother has retired and wants to buy into a retirement village. She has no debt on her home and wants to look at renting her existing home until the property market picks up again. That means she will need to borrow against her home to buy into the retirement village. The rent should cover the loan. Our concern with what’s gone with the Royal Commission is will she be able to get a loan? If she has to sell her home that could take a while, or worse still, she gets a bad price in an under-performing market.
