Lowest Livable Area

Lowest Livable Area means the lowest area in the home which could be used as living space without major structural changes. The PADEP considers the basement, if any, to be the lowest livable area if it can be used as a living area without major structural changes. This is true even if the basement is not currently renovated into a finished living space, because the buyer may renovate and use the basement as a living space. Naturally, basements with ground [dirt] floors or low ceilings would need major structural changes and, therefore, would not be considered the lowest livable area.
