Association Seeks Removal of 44-Year-Old Couple

The Fair Housing Act allows communities intended for those over 55 to discriminate against young potential renters. At least 80 percent of units must be occupied, it states, by a person older than 55.

One Florida condo association of a 55-and-over complex is trying to get rid of a couple, both of whom are 44. According to the board of directors, the rules are clear. The age restriction is on the application, and the governing documents say that the complex is an “adult community.”
