Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995 (HOPA).
80/20 means they must have 80% at least 1 person of 55+ living in each residence. The remaining 20% is discretionary and can be zero % under 55. Annually updated By-laws for each community will dictate their allowances. The 20% usually is used as a buffer, allowances for inheritances due to deaths and things like that. If you are renting in one and under 55, the Home Owners Association can tell you to leave, after your lease expires. If an owner is renting to under 55 and then in the future the HOA suddenly doesn't like you, those "Condo Commandos" could find something in their by-laws that can be used for force you out. Other laws may prohibit or delay such actions... get an HOPA Lawyer for more info! ... more

As a realtor, when I pull up the tax information, and there is more than one person listed on the property deed, I'm not even going to go there to try and sell it until I have all persons in signed agreement. Check with your local title company, but I'm pretty sure they'll tell you the same thing, and probably one or two horror stories about not being able to close because of just that situation. ... more

Hi Kmknipp,

I can do FHA and VA loans down to a 580 score BUT your score is only one small factor is getting approved for a mortgage.

You may have the required credit score but still not qualify because of issues with your credit history.

Hi Katashi669,

Based on the information you've provided, you will be better off doing this on your own. I ran some rough numbers and it looks your debt to income ratios will work at $220,000 but it is a little tight.

If you add your mother, her score will be the one used for qualifying & in determining your interest rate which is why I say you're better of doing this on your own.
