An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) also known as granny flat can be a garage, add on room or existing main dwelling room all built or remodeled to become a livable space with kitchen and bath. State legislation was passed in January 2017 to allow home owners to use this law. While many local laws regarding such use are still being worked out, it is now legal to add an ADU to almost any single family residential property. ADU‘s might help to ease the housing crisis.
It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of such unpermitted conversions that exist now in LA alone that were done prior to this new law. Property owners with non permitted ADU’s can benefit from this workshop by understanding what they need to do to come into compliance.
To help inform the public on current local law and ADU options, WANC is sponsoring the workshop below.
