It's funny, because my sister and her husband have grandchildren and great-grandchildren who visit them all the time. I think they mostly moved there for budget reasons, plus my brother-in-law, who had some back problems, was beginning to have some difficulty with one of his legs and couldn't keep up with the bigger house and yard work anymore. Subsequent to their move to the 55+, they found out it was late-onset MS. This past year he moved into a power chair, and it works for them to be there because of the low traffic and speed limits on the community roads. He can go out and get around along with all the other old guys in their golf carts.

The reason why 48. Federal law says that 20% of age 55+ communities can purchase in 55+.

We looked in Monroe and the town ordinance was one of the reasons we decided not to buy there and
head to South Jersey.
This is a HUD rule where they require at least 80% of the community to be occupied by age 55+ to qualify as an age restricted community. I think this rule applies to all adult communities not just Monroe. Are you sure about all other occupants have to above 48 yrs? I would really like to know where I can get more information on this. The Monroe township does not have anything regarding this on their website. Anyone from Renaissance, or Stonebridge or Regency please respond if you have this clarified in your bi-laws or any rule book. Thankx.

My wife called the Township when we were looking (about 10 years) and they confirmed the ruling about 48 and under.

If there are models open, maybe the sales office can confirm.

That's what we were told when we started looking a few years back. Monroe Township ordinance is no one under 48 can live in a 55+. The rule where we are now is no children under 19. There were some nice homes we looked at in Monroe, taxes and HOA's seemed high plus a lot of high tension wire towers in the area were the turnoffs. I wanted to come down to south Ocean County but my wife wanted to be close to our kids and grand kids when we are in the state and they are in Monmouth County so we opted for 4 Seasons in Jackson. Kind of weird since 6 months out of the year we are 1200 miles away in Florida. Happy wife - Happy life

I live in Englishtown, Monmouth County in a 55+ and was told when I signed a lease that 80% had to be 55+ and 20% had to be 35+ and of those ones, if they had any children, they were not to be under 18 years old. I am in a luxury apartment though so I don't know if the rules are different if you are in a sfh or town house in a 55+ community.
