On September 27th, 2016, Governor Brown signed the accessory dwelling unit bills into State law, Senate Bill (SB) 1069 that amended the State’s existing second unit law. Thanks to the new state law homeowners throughout California will be able with ease to build a second accessory dwelling onto their property, and will be able to renovate their existing garage into an accessory dwelling conversion with efficiency and legitimately with city inspection and permits.

Second units, now called accessory dwelling units (ADUs), have been identified by the State as providing an important housing option to both potential renters and homeowners. Garage Conversation that become ADU typically cost less than other types of housing, will provide convenient housing for family members, and will help ease a severe rental housing deficit that we’re experiencing in California.

Due to the new ordinance, South California residents can properly permit a garage conversion, as long as it fills simple requirements. Not be in a Hillside area. Conversions would be limit the square footage of a detached accessory dwelling to no more than 50% of the square footage of the existing single-family home while allowing at least an ADU of 640 square feet but no more than 1,200 square feet.
