Senior Parks & Subdivisions, Don't Let Your 55+ Designations Expire!

55+I was once listing a property and checked on its 55+ status at the state's Florida Commision of Human Relations website. I saw that their designation as a 55+ park was due to expire in just a few weeks! I spoke with the park's secretary, and she was unaware of this fact! This often happens as new board members get voted in. It is easy to overlook deadlines and I am told that Florida does not send out warnings that your registration is about to expire.
I was happy to download the instructions and forms she needed so that they could renew their status immediately and not lose it, even for one day.
If you or your HOA board would like to check on your subdivision's or park's status, they can do so at:
If you do need to renew at some point, you can find the instructions and can download the necessary form at the following link:
I am very careful about observing the 55+ restrictions in our subdivisions, and you can make my job a lot easier when your subdivision or park appears on the state's registered list. Then there is no question at all,and I am held legally innocent by only showing homes to people that meet your 55+ requirements. So please be sure to get and keep your park/subdivision on the state's 55+ list!
