    Answered . Generally speaking, this should not be an issue, since your daughters are obviously family. However, the Condominium rules may govern how many unrelated guests can occupy a condominium, so when you purchase, you should read through the covenants (rules) of the community you are buying in. Make sure you use a Realtor, who is required to make sure that you are provided with all of the appropriate documents before you purchase. They do not charge a buyer generally for their services, and it is well worth it. Good luck!
