Thinking about building an ADU Anaheim?  If you live in Anaheim, CA, then you are in the right place.  Building an ADU in Anaheim, CA has become increasingly popular over the last few years, but there are some important things you should know.  

ADU Anaheim

With Disneyland located in Anaheim, CA, many homeowners are wanting to build accessory dwelling units on their properties and rent them out to earn some additional income.  However, it is important to note that ADUs are not allowed to be rented out short-term or as Air BNBs.  ADUs must be rented out for at least 30 days.  This allows homeowners to establish long-term renters who will live in the accessory dwelling unit and pay rent each month.

With the current housing prices and rents being so high in Anaheim, CA, many people are looking for affordable housing.  With such a housing shortage, they’re having trouble finding a place to live.  Accessory dwelling units solve this problem by allowing an additional dwelling to be built on single family residences.  In fact, single family residences in Anaheim, CA are actually allowed to build one ADU and one Junior ADU.  Multifamily properties are allowed to build two detached ADUs and/or convert existing space into ADUs up to 25% of the number of units.
