ADU for

ADDITONAL INCOME

WHAT IS AN ADU?

ADU stands for Accessory Dwelling Unit. It’s a residential dwelling unit California lawmakers encourage you to build on your single family or multi-family properties. An ADU is complete with its own kitchen and bathroom and is designed to accommodate a separate family.

 

An additional Junior ADU (JADU) may be constructed if certain conditions are met. A single family home now may be turned into a 3 unit property.

 

Imagine what ONE or TWO additional units in your backyard can do:

ADDITIONAL INCOME

California law allows you to legally rent out your ADU to tenants to collect rent. Depending on size and location, you may receive an additional $1500 to $2300 for a one-bedroom ADU and $2500 to $ 3200 for a two-bedroom unit.
