SF Chronicle: ADUs Could Be Sold Separately From Homes Under Bill Passed By CA Legislature

Source: San Francisco Chronicle

Two state bills that could boost construction of ADUs, or accessory dwelling units, moved to the governor’s desk Monday.

AB1033, by Assembly Member Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, allows cities to decide whether property owners can sell ADUs separately, as condos, from the primary home. 

Another Ting measure, AB976, also passed and would permanently ban local ordinances that require property owners to live in their ADU — effectively removing barriers that would otherwise prohibit ADUs to be used as rental properties. 

“ADUs are a great source of housing,” Ting said Monday on the Assembly floor.
