HUD ISSUES OCCUPANCY POLICY.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a notice recently (63 FR 70256) officially adopting the 1991 HUD guidance on the factors HUD will consider when evaluating a housing provider's occupancy standards under the Fair Housing Act as HUD policy. The 1991 guidance, commonly referred to as the Keating Memorandum, dictates that a two persons per bedroom occupancy standard is generally "reasonable" though the "reasonableness of any occupancy policy is rebuttable." The notice indicates that HUD will consider the size and number of bedrooms, the size and configuration of the apartment, the age of children, other physical limitations of the housing, and any requirements of state or local law in determining whether a particular occupancy standard is reasonable.
