If your are renting, there might be local ordinances. You need to check. I know when I rented, I was told by the apartment manager that I needed to rent a two bedroom because my 4 year old son was required to have his own bedroom. She then went on to tell me that if I had children of different sexes, they would each need there own bedrooms as well. I'm not sure if the same would go if you are privately renting a house from an individual rather than a management company, but this was true for apartment complex where I was renting.
