How many people can I allow to live in my rental  house??

Does the owner's occupancy standard have to be at least two-persons-per-bedroom for non-families?

NO: The two-persons-per-bedroom occupancy standard applies only to families. When rental applicants or renewal residents are not a family with the meaning of the fair housing laws, the owner is free to adopt stricter occupancy standards, for example: 

(1) only one adult per bedroom

2) only one adult per dwelling

(3) only one married couple per dwelling

(4) no unmarried adults in the same bedroom

(5) unmarried adults only if they are related, etc.

Always good to note that the rules/requirements should be the same across the board on properties that are managed.  If a specific landlord wants something different than what is within the companies policies (and is still legal), be sure to have that request in writing; and, must be applicable to all of that specific Landlord's properties.  The Property Management Company has specific policies for all of our properties; and, we do not allow for modifications.  This way, we have a defined system that is within the law; and prevents possible mistakes by us by 'forgetting' a Landlord's exception.
