Inland Equity Community Land Trust is working with Parkview Legacy Foundation, Inland SoCal Housing Collective and Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services to promote the building od ADU to add living space and help with the housing crises.
What is an ADU?
ADUs, sometimes called a Second Dwellings, Auxiliary Dwelling Units, Granny Flats, or Mother-in-Law’s Quarters, are a completely self-contained housing unit located on the same lot as another home. ADUs have their own kitchen, bathroom, and living area. ADUs are considered accessory because they are typically smaller than the primary dwelling and are not considered the main use on the lot.
Why Build an ADU?
An ADU can provide revenue if you rent out the ADU. Some people live in their ADUs and rent out their primary home to bring in more rental income from renting out a larger space.
Building an ADU will help combat the homelessness crisis. There is a critical shortage of housing available and you can help by providing a home.
Building an ADU will make Multi-Generational Housing possible for many. Some people build ADUs to house their loved ones. Your family will be closer and be able to care for each other more readily.
An ADU would serve as an excellent retirement home and would add to your retirement income. Aging homeowners can build an ADU for themselves and rent the larger home to a family member or just for more income. (The origin of the term “granny flat”).
