  • I thought most of those communities didn't allow kids to live there.

  • Yep. Its a 55 and up community, that means if any one in the house hold isn't 55 and up, they don't have to let you in. Sucks, but thats your issue.

  • My father owns 3 homes in a 55+ community, which he bought when my stepmother was over 55 and he wasn't, yet. Their rules are that it's ok if one spouse is over 55, there are NO children in the house, and you have guests for less than 4 weeks a year.

  • It depends totally on how the rules of that community are written. Why would you want to live in a 55+ community?

  • lol, tootoobusy, b/c there is a really house there for 20,000. if we can move there for a yr we can save up to move it onto property. but i do have 2 kids, so, yes i would have to check the rules of the park.

    i was just curious, if the buyer of the house is 55 or over, can they say we can't live there if we are married. im going to call and find anyways, i just wanted to know if anyone knew any specifics.

  • I visited a friend in one, and it was only one of the couple had to meet the age requirement, but no children in this particular one.

  • Wow, $20,000. Why is it so inexpensive? Maybe you can buy it and rent it to a senior couple.
