We have apartments that we rent to Pitt and CMU students in Oakland. We have had several groups of four potential tenants approach us wishing to rent a two bedroom apartment. As I understand it, the local laws only allow apartments to be rented to three unrelated persons. However, we know from personal experience that the University rents some of their apartment style dorms to groups of four students. We also know of groups of eight renting a large house. I have been searching online for resources that define how that law applies to us as well as the University and the large house. I don't like turning away interested tenants. When I tell them that three is the max, I want to be able to assure them that other landlords who claim they can rent to groups of four are deceiving them.

If anyone knows where on the state, county or city web sites we can find the specifics on this law, please share the link on this forum.

Thanks,

Tim,
I don't have first-hand experience dealing with this issue, but it sure sounds like you need to speak with someone in the city's Code Department. It wouldn't surprise me if you find out the the universities have a special "deal" in this regard, being tax-exempt and all.
Good luck.
Jim
