What does HUD consider an individual household?
Date Published: November 2017
HUD considers an individual household as any number of individuals that are mortgagors under the same mortgage, or tenants under the same lease/rental agreement, including current and prospective mortgagors and/or tenants. In addition, multiple individuals that reside under separate households, but receive counseling services simultaneously for the same issue (e.g. three families experiencing the same problem with the same landlord) should also be counted as an individual household.
