Ic 32-31-8-7 Owner Or Landlord Not Prohibited From Refusing To Rent Based On Reasonable Occupancy Standard; Standard For Presumption Of Reasonableness

Sec. 7. (a) The residential landlord-tenant statute (as defined in IC 32-31-2.9-2) does not prohibit an owner or a landlord from refusing to rent a rental unit on the basis of a reasonable occupancy standard.

(b) For purposes of this section, an occupancy standard is presumed reasonable if:

(1) it permits two (2) individuals per bedroom; and

(2) the owner or landlord:

(A) does not include infants less than one (1) year of age in the individuals per bedroom count under subdivision (1); and

(B) increases the number of individuals per unit by considering whether the configuration of a unit includes a:

(i) den;

(ii) library;

(iii) finished basement; or

(iv) loft;

that could reasonably be used as a sleeping area, unless doing so would violate applicable state and local codes, including fire codes.

(c) An owner or landlord is not required to consider a kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, hallway, or closet as a sleeping area.

As added by P.L.266-2017, SEC.3.
