What are Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)?
Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are independent living spaces added to existing single-family home properties in Los Angeles. Also known as granny flats, mother-in-law suites, or backyard bungalows, ADUs are self-contained units with their own living area, kitchenette or kitchen, bedroom(s), and bathroom.
ADUs can be attached to the main home or detached standalone structures. Garage conversions are a popular option for creating attached ADUs by transforming existing garage space into fully functioning living areas. ADUs add livable square footage that can accommodate family or generate rental income.
