Is there a maximum amount of unrelated people that can live in a single family home?

Renting out rooms in your home can significantly reduce your cost of living and, in some cases, even allow you to live for free. However, there are legal limitations on how many rooms you can rent out in the Denver metro area, and the number varies by city. For example:

  • Arvada: 5 unrelated parties
  • Aurora: 4 unrelated parties
  • Denver: 5 unrelated parties
