My husband and I are over 55 years old. If we were to buy a home in TV would our 18 yr old daughter be allowed to live with us year round? If something was to happen to us, and she would only be in her 20's or 30's would she be able to inherit the house and own and live there?
Good question, I wondered the same thing. If I lived in TV and at some point one of my under 55 children wanted to move in to help me on a daily basis could they do it.
I think there are also several villiages that are not restricted to over 55.

lots of college age kids in TV
Talk to some of the servers in restaurants and other places. There are lots of college age or post high school age kids in TV who live for now with parent(s). There are lots of these kids everywhere, especially with the current economy.
A server at Mallory Hill told our group that he was establishing Florida residency (he and his parents had just moved a few months before) so he could pay in-state tuition and Leesburg Comm College (I think that was the one he mentioned), and would probably still live at home for at least a couple of years while he went to school.
I think it will happen more and more as the youngest baby boomers and beyond start retiring. They are more likely to have delayed having their kids until their 30s (or beyond, God help them), and thus their kids won't be sprung from the nest until their parents are sometimes in their 60s.
Guess that's maybe a good reason to make the adult pools 30 and over - I used to wonder about the age cutoff (why 30 and not 18 or 19)? If I were 25 I wouldn't want to hang out ALL the time with us geezers, and we geezers usually don't want to hang out ALL the time with the 20 somethings.
By the way, the ones who live there all kind of know where to hang out with the other regular residents their age after work/school hours. I think that's kind of neat - another subculture, just like the rest of us have our regular groups and hangouts after awhile.
In response to the person who said "why would you move an 18 yr old to a retirement communuty?" My daughter is a freshman in college. Even though she was an honor student all through high school, sometimes college doesn't work out as expected. Its nice to know she would have a home to come to.
From my understanding, if the child does not live with you, then the 30-day rule applies for visits. My guess would be that if your home is now their permanent resident address and if you get them an ID card, then the 30-day rule would not be applicable. However, if their permanent resident address is not in TV, then the 30-day rule would apply. You might want to call about college-age kids staying for the summer.
