Hey Lenny,

I don't think that Oakmont will make that exception unless one of the residents is at least 55 years old, even in light of the ADA.
Have you considered looking into condos that offer elevators or single family homes that can have ramp modifications done? I have seen many homes especially in Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa that would work.
If you need any help, I would be honored to work for you.

My cell is always on if you need anything.
Good Luck out there!

Most of the homes are single story and have wide hallways. I live in Oakmont and it really isn't a problem. Unfortunately, it is a 55 minimum age community. That could present a problem if you are looking to buy a home. One of the owners would need to be at least 55 to qualify for homeownership.

I suggest you contact an organization in Santa Rosa called DSLC http://www.cri-dove.org/ Disability Services and Legal Center, have many advisors and attorneys to consult with for free for disabled persons. they should be able to clarify the law regarding housing access for disabled people. They are a wonderful organization and will be doing a fundraiser soon, so check out their website! If you are unable to buy a home there yourself, perhaps you have family over 55 who will help you qualify.

You could contact the HOA and find out if they would be willing to make an exception? It couldn't hurt to ask.
