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.
