What is a Junior ADU?

ADUs in LA received a major change in 2020 when state bills AB 68 and AB 881 allowed the same single-family lot to have both an ADU and a Junior ADU.

Since only one ADU is allowed per lot, the optional addition of a Junior ADU has changed the California living situation, especially in major cities such as Los Angeles.

Like an ADU, a JADU is a miniature living unit that is allowed to exist on a single-family residential lot. While it can’t be sold independently from the main living area, it can be rented out. That means homeowners could have the main house, an ADU, and a JADU on the same lot.

However, a homeowner must be living in either the JADU or the main home before renting out the other space. This is not the case for ADUs, as a homeowner could rent out both the main property and the ADU
