Maximum Apartment Occupants?

Question: What is the law regarding how many people can reside in a two bedroom apartment in Michigan? Also, does having a child under the age of 2 count as a tenant?

Answer: I don't think there is any particular law as to how many people can live in one apartment. The landlord can generally determine in the Lease how many persons the Landlord will allow. Also, at some point as the number of people increases and the size decreases the apartment becomes unsafe. A small child is counted as an occupant, but is not a tenant in the legal sense with legal obligations to the landlord. Hope this helps.
