Accessory Dwelling Unit

An owner-occupied property with an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) may be considered a duplex if sold to an investor who rents both units. Typically, it is easier to get zoning permission for an owner-occupied property with an ADU than for a duplex.  If a rental property is found to be in violation of local codes, a landlord could be required to pay relocation costs – and possibly more – for the displaced tenant.
