Why would they tell on you? You wouldn't be doing anything wrong. No child under 19 can stay in The Villages MORE than 30 days in one year.

If you have 12 grandchildren and they each stay for 30 days in a year you are doing things properly. And if you have 30 grandchildren and each of those stay for a total for each of 30 days a year, you STILL are in the rules.

But I will tell you what my grandmother told me, and she dearly loved children too. She said;


" There isn't a kid in the world who is cute after 8:00 at night."

Gracie (by the way, that is my granddaughter's name ), your grandmother was a smart lady. I totally agree with that!!!

The rule is you may have children under the age of 19 in the home for a total of 30 days during the calendar year. It does not mean that each child gets their own thirty days.

Each child does get their own thirty days.

The link is the copy of your deed restrictions. Here it is in a nutshell:

Persons under age 19 may visit and temporarily reside for periods not to

exceed 30 days IN TOTAL in any calendar year.

Guess it's all in the interpretation - or as Bubba once "that depends on what the meaning of the word "is" "is".

Then I would question who in the world is keeping track of all these comings and goings???

When they added the words IN TOTAL, that pretty much sums up the interpretation.

Plenty of residents are keeping track of various comings and goings.

BTW, political references are not permitted on this forum.

"Persons" is the key word, plural, more than one, may visit for 30 days each. If under the age of 19, and you wanted to visit the 31st day, The Villages would not issue another guest pass for that person until a calendar year has passed. TV keep track of all passes in their data base. In the meantime, other grandchildren are welcome to visit on their own pass. Simple as that.

I asked my Rep and I am right. Na na na nana naaaaa.

Or I IS right.

I speak ex cathedra.

YOu cannot have Taylor more than 30 days, and you cannot have Ethan more than 30 days and you cannot have Aiden more than thirty days but you can have them all each thirty days along with Jack, Jill and Bertha. TOO..But every single one of them must go home after thirty days so you can repair the house. And the lawn. And the golf cart, and your nerves.

I have no desire to read the previous 50 posts, that may already have this information posted, but will just offer from the Recreation Department web page:http://www.districtgov.org/departmen...D%20Policy.pdf

Issuance:
Guest ID cards are issued for a guest (s) whose current residence is outside
Lake, Marion and Sumter counties for up to 30 days from the issue date. Guest
ID card renewals may be requested after the 30th day for an additional 30 days
and renewals may continue to be issued every 30 days.
The In-Area Guest ID card for qualified family members is valid for one (1) year
from date of issuance.

What a nightmare scenario you have just laid out. Now when looking to buy, among other things, prospective buyers should ask their new neighbors how many grandchildren they have.

My granddaughter lives in Rolling Acres, about 10 minutes from my house. She is at my home at least 3 days a week, 3 hours a visit. Do I have to start counting hours??? I think if no one takes advantage of the rules, common sense applys.

That's fine that she can visit often and easily, but if she doesn't have a visitor's pass, she can't use any of the facilities here in TV.
