What Constitutes A Legal Bedroom?
Updated: May 13, 2019
Many people ask me “what constitutes a legal bedroom”. We recently discussed this in our broker weekly meeting so I thought I would share with you below what really does constitute a legal bedroom…
A bedroom window must be 5.7 square feet
No more than 44 inches from the ground
Must have access to a bathroom w/out passing through another bedroom
NO closet requirement – Contrary to popular belief
Must be 70 square feet in size…50 sqft. per person if more than one.
Ceiling must not be lower than 7 feet
Must have access to natural ventilation and must have a heat source…no portable heaters
