San Jose ADU Zoning And Building Standards

San Jose has embraced ADUs as a solution to the housing shortage. The city’s zoning and building standards have been updated to facilitate the construction of ADUs on single-family properties. These regulations ensure that ADUs are built safely and harmoniously with the existing neighborhood, while providing homeowners with the opportunity to create additional living space or generate rental income.

Property Requirements

To build an ADU in San Jose, your property must meet certain requirements. The lot must be zoned for single-family residential use and have an existing single-family dwelling. The ADU can be attached to the primary residence, detached, or converted from an existing structure such as a garage. Setbacks, height limits, and lot coverage restrictions apply to ensure the ADU integrates well with the surrounding area.
