Also known as Granny Flats, Accessory Dwelling Units ( ADUs ) are independent second dwelling units on your property.
What is an ADU?
Also known as a Granny Flat or Backyard Home, an Accessory Dwelling Unit is an independent second dwelling unit on a property.
These units can be attached to an existing house or detached as a separate structure.
ADUs can be constructed on any lot zoned for residential use.
Backyard homes can be legally rented.
Los Angeles ADUs - New 2020 Standards
Starting January 1, 2020, the rules regarding Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in California and Los Angeles have changed for the better including very favorable parking requirements. Most properties can now accommodate an ADU.
ADU's are a huge opportunity for individual home owners to provide new housing units in their own backyard. Homes that can serve as a:
Nearby, yet private residence for an elderly relative
Home for a young adult working towards affording their own place
Additional income though long or short term rentals
