My HOA allows only three adults in a home. I want to have my elderly parents live in this home. Are there elder laws to allow this?

More details to this question:
With the elderly parents we would have four adults in an HOA governed community where the rules provide not more than three adults, regardless of size of home. Our home has four bedrooms and four full baths so clearly adequate in size. Can the HOA preclude me adding both elderly parents?

I have never heard of the restriction.  I would move them in anyway, and deal with the consequences.  Maybe you could claim it was "temporary" that you are just providing care during rehabilitation.  The regulation seems arbitrary, and would be hard to enforce, and its probably worth the problems with the HOA based on your circumstance. 

Report Abuse
Elder Law
As adults age, they often lose some mental acuity while also facing more physical limitations. These health conditions put senior citizens at greater risk of exploitation and abuse. At the same time, the elderly need to think about their long-term medical and financial needs, and make estate plans to ensure their legacy after they pass away. An elder law attorney can work with seniors and their families to address issues such as advanced directives, powers of attorney, living wills and last wills and testaments. Elder law lawyers can also help families intervene if a guardianship or conservatorship is necessary. And personal injury law firms with experience in elder issues can help victims of elder abuse and nursing abuse take civil and criminal legal actions against their abusers.
