Does an "adult community" allow for grown up children?

Help the community by answering this question:


Each community will have its own Covenants and Restrictions (CC&Rs). Laws and regulations governing these CC&Rs can also be different in each state. Request a copy of the conditions and terms defining "adult" and also make sure those rules are fully legal. I have seen communities where its OK to "visit" for a lengthy period, where an "adult" can have a grandchild living with them based on the rules of the commuity and/or hardship cases, where an "adult" must own and then someone else can rent, and all kinds of other mis-matched, non-standardized rules exist. Consult the rulebook, the laws, then an attorney if things aren't making sense to you. Best!

An adult community permits grown up children to visit, but they must be 55 years of age to purchase a property in order to live there full time.

Usually an "adult community" is aged restricted. Most of them in our area are 55+. Grown up children can visit, but cannot purchase until they are at least 55 years of age.
