Help the community by answering this question:


In most (but not necessarily all) active adult communities, these rules usually apply: one of the purchasers must be at least 55 years of age. Someone under that age may also be on the deed and may live there full time, as long as the 55+ person also lives there. No one under the age of 19 can live in the unit on a full time basis. However, people of any age may visit at any time for extended periods. Family members of all ages (infants included) are welcome as visitors in these communities.

In order to confirm the policies of the active adult community that you may want to live in, call its condo association and ask for a copy of its rules and regulations.

Hi Robert~

Most active adult communities employ similar age restrictions. In most cases, units must be occupied by at least one person over the age of 55. No one under the age of 18 can permanently live in the unit. However, friends and family members of any age may visit at any time.

Every community and sub-community has its own set of bylaws. Therefore, each property's restrictions should be verified on a case by case basis.
