What is an ADU?
•An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a residential unit
that can be added to a lot with an existing single family
home.
•ADUs can be detached (a separate building in a
backyard), attached to or part of the primary residence,
or a garage conversion.
•ADUs are independent rental units that have their own
kitchens, bathrooms, living areas, and entrances.
•ADU housing units go by many names: backyard
homes, secondary units, garage apartments.
© 2018 amk STUDIO
Why Build an ADU?
•ADUs can provide additional space for:
•Caregivers
•Grown children
•Elderly parents
•Renters
•Because ADUs are rental units, they produce additional
household income.
•“Empty nesters” can stay in their neighborhoods by
moving into a smaller ADU and renting their larger
existing home to pay the mortgage.
© 2018 amk STUDIO
What is the State Law for ADUs?
•In January of 2017, a new California state law (AB 2299)
took effect that encourages homeowners to build
ADUs.
•Local governments must ministerially approve one ADU
per single family lot if the unit is:
•contained within an existing residence or accessory
structure.
•has independent exterior access from the existing
residence.
•has side and rear setbacks that are sufficient for fire
safety (garage conversions are “grandfathered”).
•Prohibits a local government from adopting an
ordinance that precludes ADUs.
© 2018 amk STUDIO
Parking Requirements
•One space per bedroom or unit.
•Off street parking may be tandem or in setback areas.
•No parking requirements if the ADU meets any of the
following:
•Is within a half mile from public transit.
•Is within an architecturally and historically significant
historic district.
•Is part of an existing primary residence or an existing
accessory structure.
•Is in an area where on-street parking permits are
required, but not offered to the occupant of the ADU.
•Is located within one block of a car share area.
© 2018 amk STUDIO
ADU Size and Setbacks
• Attached ADUs are limited to a maximum of 50% of the
existing living area, with a maximum increase in floor area of
1,200 square feet (excluding garage).
• Detached ADUs are limited to a maximum of 1,200 square
feet (excluding garage).
• For ADUs that require an addition or a new accessory
detached structure, more restrictive maximum ADU size can
be established by local jurisdictions with certain limitations.
• Underlying FAR and lot coverage restrictions may restrict
maximum ADU size allowed.
• No passageway can be required.
• No additional setback can be required from an existing
garage that is converted to an ADU.
© 2018 amk STUDIO
Fees
•ADUs shall not be considered new residential uses for
the purpose of calculating utility connection fees or
capacity charges, including water and sewer service.
•State law prohibits a local agency from requiring an
ADU applicant to install a new or separate utility
connection or impose a related connection fee or
capacity charge forADUs that are contained within an
existing residence or accessory structure.
•For attached and detached ADUs, this fee or charge
must be proportionate to the burden of the unit on the
water or sewer system and may not exceed the
reasonable cost of providing the service.
