Would duct work in my basement prevent me from legally renting out the space?

I have a basement that I am interested in renting out but the basement has a decent amount of duct work that that brings the ceiling space below the needed 7ft. Would this preclude me from renting the basement as a living space?

More details:

– I don’t have the money to install separate electrical panels so I will likely be renting the space as a room in a single family home.
– I am interested in adding a front door to the basement, which would make for a total of two exits in addition to the interior stairwell.
– In the event that I add the front door I may also add a window near the front door.

Help! Filing A Structural Warranty Claim?


We have had multiple issues in my condo conversion, mostly related to plumbing. The builder has sent us on wild goose chases claiming the problems to be due to xyz and refusing to fix them when in fact they were often due to improper installations. I recently appear to have a leak in my shower which, after some failed attempts at fixing, turns out to be a bigger issue than I originally thought and might require the entire shower to be pulled out and redone. and which is going to cost plenty. Prior to this the issues were less expensive to fix, so we just handled them on our own, but given the cost associated with this issue and the inconvenience (not being able to use a shower to shower!) I am going to pursue filing a structural warranty claim. Does anyone have any insights into how I might do so, and tips? Building was registered as an LLC, but builder does appear to have filed a letter with the city for 10% of conversion costs (not sure if the letter is still valid or with DCRA, but building is still under structural warranty period).

Thank you!
