2020 ADU Laws
There are two bills that attempt to clean up some of the 2019 legislation (AB 953 and SB 773). As of 2/6, the changes clarify that (1) If a jurisdiction has not acted on a completed application in 60 days it is deemed approved and (2) A homeowner can have both an ADU and a JADU under the special (e) provisions. It also a fixes a typo that said jurisdictions "may shall" approve multifamily ADUs, clarifying that jurisdictions shall approve them. Finally, it clarifies that the ADU rules are of statewid concern. All of the other rules are unchanged.
