Default 55+ ??????

Just a question. I have seen over the last 3 months, police records from all 3 counties, of arrests of Village residents. How is it that, of the 60 or so people arrested, all but a few were under 55, and, some under 19. How could all these underage people be living in the Villages. The police reports say "resident of the Villages", not visitor.

They could be household residents of parents or family members. They’re issued ID cards that get renewed every two years with continued proof of residency at the same address.

You can find lotsa facts re 55+ communities at this website:
Housing for Older Persons Directory / Resources / Home - Florida Commission on Human Relations

The short answer is:
Federal Register 24 CFR Part 100; section 760.24-760.37 (4a), Florida Statutes
For a community to be considered "housing for older persons" as a 55+ community, the housing must be intended and operated for occupancy by persons 55 years of age or older and meet the following requirements:
1. At least 80% of the occupied units are occupied by at least one person 55 years of age or older.
2. The facility or community publishes and adheres to policies and procedures that demonstrate its intent to in fact be a provider of housing for older persons.
3. The facility or community complies with rules established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for verification of occupancy.

Anyone living in the Villages under age 19 should have been granted a special permission usually due to their special needs.
Not sure if I have free time...or if I just forgot everything I was supposed to do!

55 to own
18 and over to move in with parents/grandparents
any age to rent, daily/weekly/monthly

Air BnB lists 300+ rooms or whole homes for as little $49/night (that's cheaper than most the no tell motels up on 441/27)

You don't have to be 55 to buy a house here.
We bought when we were 48 & 49.
A friend just bought a house here and he is in his 30's.

See post #3 for the CORRECT answer.
I don't know how so many people live here and don't know the rules.

Many if not most of the under 55 arrestees are living with mommy and daddy because they just got out of drug rehab, prison or the like. They just keep getting into trouble.

Part of the answer could be how well the rules are enforced. It could also be that the community is no different than most over 55 in the percentage of problems. It just looks like a big problem because of the number of residences.
I also think short term rentals can be a problem.

There is no "age requirement" for resale homes.

And if one did not look up the police reports or the villages dot com news...there would be no notable concerns with crime or the ages of the people who live here.

Always remember folks for some reason choose to ignore the 99% good and dwell on the 1% what ever.
