One bedroom Boston condos

This question I have been asked several times by Boston condo buyers: What’s the legal definition of a “bedroom” by Massachusetts code?

According to Massachusetts code # 310 CMR 15.002, provides this definition of a legal bedroom:

Bedroom – A room providing privacy intended primarily for sleeping and consisting of all the following:
(A)floor space of no less than 70 square feet;
(B)for existing houses and for mobile homes, a ceiling height of no less than 7’0’;
(C)for new construction, a ceiling height of no less than 7’3”;
(D)an electrical service and ventilation; and
(E)at least one window.

Please note that the above is not intended as legal advice.
