San Diego, California, October 21, 2022 – The COVID-19 pandemic hit most of us pretty bad especially when it came to our jobs and business opportunities. The whole world had to adjust to the new normal and those who lost their jobs or businesses had to either find creative ways to earn money or how to budget whatever they had left. It’s a good thing California came up with a new law that helps homeowners have an additional form of income with their unused garage spaces. It also helps people who could no longer afford big houses by giving them the opportunity to rent out these garages.


California’s Governor Newsom signed the legislation to increase affordable housing in California, which now allows homeowners to convert their garages into rentable living spaces. The law went into effect in 2020 but homeowners have to renovate their garages first according to the law’s guidelines to make it a habitable space.

What is an ADU?

ADU stands for ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT. The term was described in the Los Angeles City Ordinance No.186481 as being an attached or detached residential dwelling unit that should provide living facilities (it should be complete) for either one person or more. It’s basically located in your home or a lot where you will also build your home. It should have permanent areas for living, sleeping, eating, cooking, and sanitation.
