The new State law went into effect on January 1, 2017 for second units, now called accessory dwelling units (ADUs). ADUs have been identified by the State as providing an important housing option to both potential renters and homeowners. They typically cost less than other types of housing, provide convenient housing for family members, help ease a severe rental housing deficit, maximize limited land resources and existing infrastructure, and assist homeowners with supplemental income. You can legally rent out your ADU in your backyard, it’s the new law!
