WHAT IS AN ADU?
What qualifies as an ADU in California?
Before getting into legislation, let's see what is considered to be an ADU in California. According to the ADU Handbook developed by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), ADUs are housing units with complete independent living facilities for one or more persons.
What does the term ADU mean?
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs) are an innovative and effective option for adding much needed housing in California. ADUs have been known by many names: granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, secondary units and more.
