ADUs and Condos: Separating Ownership

by | Oct 9, 2014

Back in 2007, I used the condominium legal structure in order to sell ADUs independently from the primary dwellings on two side-by-side lots for the Sabin Green development.  I thought at the time that this might become a more common development model, as lot & home prices increased in close-in neighborhoods and undeveloped side yards became increasingly scarce.

It look longer than I thought.  But finally, one recession and 7 years later, another project is using this model and I’m getting inquiries left and right about how the mechanics work to condo-ize ADUs.  I’ve just written up an overview of how the process works, which is posted here on the website.  Enjoy!
