New Occupancy Standard Tools Available

The FHCWM is pleased to now offer a complementary guidebook and a Square Footage Calculator Tool to assist in determining reasonable occupancy limits based on local restrictions.  These resources serve to assist condominium associations, landlords, property owners and managers, and municipalities enforcing occupancy codes in determining how to set occupancy limitations with consideration of fair housing laws.  While the guidebook is geared towards Kent County, the resources and tools provide helpful best practice information regardless of geography.
