Building an ADU in California
As of 2021, California Health and Safety Code (HSC), Section 65583(c)(7) states that cities and counties throughout California instate a plan that incentivizes the installation of ADUs offered at affordable rent prices. These requirements are targeted at low-to-moderate income households. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) lists a variety of grants and financial incentives aimed at the costs for the planning, operation, and construction of ADUs. For more info about ADU guidelines in California, check out the HCD’s ADU handbook. Because of all these incentives and Abodu’s built to order process, Abodu can have your ADU in your backyard in as little as six months. Additionally, Abodu has pre-approved and expedited permitting plans with multiple cities in California. In San Jose and Los Angeles, Abodu uses pre-approved plans to install an accessory dwelling unit in as little as 30 days.
