ADDITION OF MINOR CHILD : minor.sdcpm.com

If the addition of a minor to the household (through birth, adoption, custody change, fostering, guardianship or otherwise) causes the household to exceed the occupancy standards for the unit, then Resident(s) will be permitted to remain in the unit through the end of their lease or six months, whichever is longer.


At the end of the lease or six months, whichever is longer, Resident(s) must move to a larger unit, if one is available and if Resident(s)’ income meets the rent-to-income ratio for the larger unit. Alternatively, if no larger unit is available or Resident(s)’ income does not meet the rent-to-income ratio for the larger unit, then Resident(s) must move off the property

This policy is intended solely to address the issue of over-occupancy of a unit due to the addition of a minor to the household. The policy does not in any way affect or modify other provisions of the lease/rental agreement or rights of the Landlord under applicable federal state or local laws, including but not limited to the right to serve legal notices for lease or rules violations, to serve routine notices of rent increase or other changes of terms of the tenancy or to terminate the tenancy for legitimate business reasons.
