I am a landlord and have a one bedroom apartment.Doesn't HUD recommend or require a separate bedroom if renting to someone with children?
Hello JACUSTOMER,No. There is no Department of Housing and Urban Development law or regulation that if you are renting to a tenant with a child that the child must have a separate bedroom. The Federal Government does not regulate local landlord-tenant relations.In addition, your local fire, zoning, or building code may regulate how many people can occupy an apartment of a given size. But there are generally no regulations about where in an apartment a child must sleep.Thomas
