I live in Florida, in a 55+ community that is land lease. Old manager was fired, new manager is a 30 year old women, widow with no children. Our community is 20% 45-55 year old, and 80% 55+. The new manager is going to live in a house in our park. Can she at her age be a resident here ? The corporation says yes because she is their employee.

If she's an employee and one of the job benefits is having a home onsite, the answer is probably yes. Did you ask the board? If so, what was the response?

Your question sounds like you think a 30 year old with no kids and unmarried can't relate to people 45+ , which is beyond silly and smells of prejudice, which is highly offensive. this lady has been hired to do a JOB and as long as she does it properly, what do you care about the other stuff?

I suggest reading your governing documents and any other paperwork you signed when you bought your home. The 55-and-older communities that I'm familiar with do not require that all residents must be 55 or older - there will be exceptions. I agree with the other posters that in-community housing would likely be an acceptable form of compensation (and it may be a job requirement).

Also it may be a violation of employment laws to restrict hiring by age. Is there such a thing as reverse age discrimination???

What 30 year old wants to live in a mobile home park with all old people who complain and bytch about everything like they own the place. They are basically renters.

You would have to check your covenants. What your corporation is saying sounds reasonable.

It does not violate the FHA 55+ rules as long as 80% or more occupied units have seniors living in them.

Interestingly, the federal Age Discrimination Act only applies to people who are 40 and over so it is legal to discriminate against younger people based on age.

If it’s a 55+ community, aren’t the 45-54 year olds already violating the rules? If not, what’s one more under-55?

As some have already mentioned, you should first refer to your governing documents, but it is very possible that she can live in your community. This could be beneficial to you because she will get a good sense of what your community is like and understand what its needs are.
