It could have something to do with renting a house or apartment; your rights in dealing with a dispute in a retirement village; making sure a Will is valid or not open to interpretation or making sure that your end-of-life-wishes are readily available should you become incapable of communicating them if required.

This Guide will help you to untangle the intricacies of many issues which have already, or may confront you, as you continue your life’s journey.
