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 bedroom2) 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.
