Senior, All Age, 55+, Family, there are many age classifications and restrictions in mobile home parks across California and the country. Although they may have different names there are two basic types of communities, those geared towards those whose children have “left the nest” and who may have a little more time on their hands (anyone over the age of 55, although in some parks the limit is 65) and those that are geared toward families.
When looking for your “perfect fit” age restrictions are huge factors. If you are a small, large or a family just getting started, you want to be surrounded by a community that is in the same place in life. Make sure that when you are looking at homes that the community fits your lifestyle. This will make a huge difference in your overall happiness with not only your home but also your park.
If you are retired or hoping to retire and want an escape from neighborhood children a Senior Community will be your best bet. They often have group activities in the common space and many have daily shuttles that can take you to the store or even doctors appointments.
Age restrictions in parks are legal as stated in Civil Code 798.76* but are not permanent. This means your park can change from senior to all age at any time, most park owners do not make this change unless there is a significant change in the dynamic of the community. It is important to note that when moving into an age-restricted community, the restrictions can be changed.
