Legalization of Garage Conversions in LA City
With the Senate Bill 1069, things have become easier for homeowners in California. They can now build and rent second dwellings on their property. If you have always wanted to convert your garage into a small living space, this is the right time to work on it.
The bill is created to help new housing units where there is a lack of supply and aims towards curbing the skyrocketing rental prices. When someone moves to the city, the difference in prices is clearly evident. After the passing of Bill 1069, we can convert your garage space in an efficient and stylish way. The government of California hopes that these new small dwellings can be put on rent and this will help low-income households find the right living space for them.
If you have a two-car garage, it can convert into a comfortable living space that comes complete with a bathroom and kitchen. With this bill, residents of Los Angeles can get their garages converted while complying with the rules. According to the rules, the area should be situated within a mile and a half of public transit. It should not be more than 1,200 square feet and should not be more than five feet away from the property line. There are several other requirements as well and you can see the full list in the bill document.
If you want to rent out or want extra space for your growing family, a garage conversion can be the best idea.
