Looking to buy in Garden City question about local regulations and "boarders".

Asked by A.G. Pennyfinger, 11552 Tue Jul 24, 2012

Hello all. I'm looking to buy a home in Garden City, NY and I'm familiarizing myself with all the regulations the village has. It says:

"One-family dwellings: buildings containing not more than one dwelling unit occupied exclusively for residential purposes by the immediate family of the owner or tenant, not having more than one kitchen or one kitchenette and with not more than two lodgers or boarders residing with a family."

What qualifies as a lodger or boarder? Is it OK to have a friend live with me indefinitely or does lodger/boarder imply a time restriction on their stay?
