Florida 55+Communities

Here is a link   http://fchr.state.fl.us/housing_directory/search
to the state-approved 55 and older communities in Florida. The rules and regulations vary among the associations, but most require at least one person on the deed to be 55 years of age or older, minors may not be allowed to stay overnight and leasing may or may not be allowed. If allowed, tenants may need to follow the age restrictions.
A community that wants to register with the state as 55+ is requesting permission to be exempt from the Fair Housing Act familial status protected class restrictions. In other words, if part of your intended rules is to prohibit minor children from living in the home, the association needs to register with the Florida Commission on Human Relations. Click on this link to read the FAQs.
