Protecting Senior Status
The legal issues pertaining to senior housing developments are extremely complex and have been changing constantly as the laws change. Any association interested in preserving its senior status needs to consult regularly with legal counsel.
Senior associations should have adopted procedures for age verification no later than October 30, 1999, and, at a minimum, must perform age verification surveys or update age verification survey information at least once every two years and get forms completed by any new occupants as soon as possible.
