For most older adults, this is not an issue, as long as all occupants are over 55.

However, if there is the possibility of an adult child or grandchildren moving back in or spending prolonged visits to the community, there could be some potential problems.

I recently spoke with a woman in New Jersey who was told that despite being 55 herself, her new 48 year old husband could not reside in the community. Most communities are not that strict but obviously, it is important to know this information up front.
