Does anyone have any information concerning living in a 55 + community for over 5 years as a young couple and are being force out because we started to have our children in 2006.

Thank you

Did the community turn 55+ after you moved in? Is one of you over 55? Generally speaking, in a 55+ community children of the homeowners/renters are allowed if they are 19 years old or older.

However, the HOA can still turn you down. When I was looking to rent in a 55+ community, they turned me down because they said both I (58) and my two daughters (23 and 28) were too "young" for the community. lol The unit was subsequently rented to 2 sisters who were 72 and 76.

You need to give us more information.

If you live in such a community and have a 1 yr old child you better start looking for a new place to live. These ppl want their communites to be 55 and over for reason.

Why did you move there in the first place. Do you want others in there with kids. It's called an active adult community .Am I missing the point here sorry but I don't understand .

I moved in 1998 and while I was under 30 years of age, at that time it seem they had lost there status of being an 55 + due to someone suing them. Due to the fact that they allowed me in the community at a young age the understanding was that I was grandfathered in and therefore my children would be also grandfathered in.

Why would a community allowed you in as a young couple and expect you not to have a family? Before buying a house in this community we had an interview with a board member to be allowed into this community and at that same meeting there was nothing said that we could not have children.

Question: Why would you even want to raise young children in a retirement community?
Personally, I think that is very unfair to the child.

I wouldnt want to live anywhere where anyone was gonna tell me what to do. There is no way I would even live in a community with an HOA and pay out my hard earned money for someone to tell me what color shade I can have in my window or what I can and cannot have in my front yard. Just move, you will be happier in the long run.

Was there anything in writing when they "grandfathered you in"?

If it was all verbal, maybe there was some miscommunication? Not every couple these days wants children, so maybe they were under the impression that you had no plans to have children?
