24VAC30-41-380. Multiple Occupancy of Same Dwelling Unit.

A. If eligible multiple occupants occupy the same dwelling unit, they will be considered to constitute a family for relocation purpose if a comparable replacement dwelling is available. The occupants are entitled to only one replacement housing or rent supplement payment. If a comparable replacement dwelling is not available, a replacement housing or rent supplement payment for each occupant will be based on housing which is comparable to the quarters privately occupied by each occupant plus community rooms which have been shared with other occupants.

B. When all individuals displaced from one dwelling do not relocate into decent, safe and sanitary housing, those individuals who do relocate into decent, safe and sanitary housing will be paid the pro rata share of the appropriate payment they would have received if all individuals had relocated together in the same ownership or rental status as they had at the time of initiation of negotiations.

C. If eligible multiple occupants of the displacement dwelling move to separate replacement dwellings, each occupant is entitled to a reasonable prorated share, as determined by VDOT, of any relocation payments that would have been made if the occupants moved together to a comparable replacement dwelling.

D. If VDOT determines that two or more occupants maintained separate households within the same dwelling, such occupants have separate entitlements to relocation payments.
