The person, or one of the people, in whose name the home is owned, being bought, or rented.
If there is no such person present, any household member 15 years old and over can serve as the householder.
Two types of householders are distinguished: a family householder and a nonfamily householder.
A family householder is a householder living with one or more people related to him or her by birth, marriage, or adoption. The householder and all people in the household related to him are family members.
A nonfamily householder is a householder living alone or with nonrelatives only.
