The BOMA Multi-Unit Residential Standard (MURS)

Cover This standard was released by BOMA International on May 19, 2010. On June 7, it received the designation ANSI/BOMA Z65.4-2010 from the American National Standards Institute. Co-developers include the Institute of Real Estate Management, the National Association of Home Builders and the National Multi-Housing Council.

It can be purchased by calling BOMA at 800-426-6292 or online at www.BOMA.org and costs $34.94 for BOMA members and $44.95 for non-members. Like all current BOMA standards it is available only as an elecrtronic download with DRM constraints.

This document focuses on floor area calculations of residential buildings containing four or more living units, complementing the NAHB Standard. It defines both net and gross areas of individual units in addition to measuring whole buildings, including common areas, balconies and the like. The standard cautions users to be aware of state laws regarding measurement of condominium units.
