What is a San Jose in-law unit?
An in-law unit is legally defined as an accessory dwelling unit or apartment that provides a separate, additional living space on a property that would only have one living unit under normal circumstances. An in-law unit is not part of the home’s original design, so they are added to existing parts of the residence. Sometimes an in-law unit is referred to as a secondary suite. Depending on the jurisdiction where your home is located, an in-law apartment could be classified as multi-family housing and subjected to a different property tax assessment. Often, an in-law unit is a basement suite or an apartment over a garage. Sometimes a dwelling is built-on or attached to a single-family home much like a small guest house. To be an in-law unit, it must have its own entrance, a kitchen, a bathroom, and living space, including a bedroom. Usually, common space, such as living rooms or laundry rooms, are permitted. Usually, an in-law unit ranges from 300 square feet to 700 square feet. Depending on your community, an in-law unit can be a real asset to your property value. All the proper permits must be obtained, and the project cannot violate local zoning ordinances. Home Quality Remodeling is experienced in in-law units and the remodeling process.
What is a San Jose ADU?
An accessory dwelling unit, which is called an ADU, is just a modern term for an old idea. You basically have a second small dwelling either attached to your single-family home or built on the same grounds. It could be a tiny house on a foundation in the backyard, a basement apartment or suite, or an apartment located above the garage. An ADU is a great place for relatives, such as elderly parents, or for adult children who are just entering the workforce and who aren’t ready to move out and away on their own yet. Regardless of the kind of ADU you have, it is part of the same piece of property as the main home as both properties have the same owner. If you are looking for a San Jose ADU remodel, let the skills and experience of Home Quality Remodeling go to work for you.
