"Some Maryland cities and counties have enforced occupancy restrictions. For example, the occupancy in single-family dwellings is limited to no more than four unrelated persons and occupancy in town homes is restricted to no more than three unrelated persons in the city of Salisbury."

Above quoted from:


You would have to find the codes from your own city or county and generally, those restrictions don't apply to familes so it would depend on the size of the dwelling and how many you want to allow to live there.

Occupancy limits may depend on the county or city the rental property is located. Also, because landlords frequently encounter common landlord-tenant legal issues, you may want to consider signing up for a LegalStreet plan. With the plan, you have unlimited access to a lawyer to ask your questions as they come up and the plan also offers discounted legal representation should you need it.
