Too many renters in condo unit. What can association do?

The residents in our condo building are in an uproar over an owner that rented her 1000 sq. ft condo unit to 3 adults plus two infants in a 2 bedroom. How can we legally set the occupancy limits in our condo? Our attorney states that as long as they are related by blood, there can be 10 people dwelling in a unit. I think this is absurd. Most of our condo is comprised of 1-2 people max. Each unit is alotted 1.5 parking spots. Already the renters have 3 cars in the lot after being told no more than 2 cars.

The owners of our condo do not feel it is fair that we are bearing the brunt of their water usage i.e., showers, etc. and laundry. What can we legally do about it. Prior to this they had 5 adults and a 2 year old. Our condo rules used to state: 2 adults per bedroom and somehow that was eliminated. HELP!!
