Not sure if you are a landlord renting out a condo, however, Federal and State fair housing laws (and most communities) also state that you may not discriminate against families. Meaning: A landlord cannot refuse to rent to familiesâ€”all children includedâ€”simply because the landlord does not want to rent to families with children. Be careful when setting occupancy limits to avoid the perception of discrimination against families. A house with very large bedrooms may be able to accommodate more people.
You might want to check with the HOA to see if there are any regulations in place.
In a single family home, the rules are not so stringent because there's no organization supervising the numbers of inhabitants in the dwelling.
While there may be an HOA that governs that single family home community in terms of what can be done to the outside of the house, there is nothing that is likely to limit occupant numbers because families come in all sizes.
