If you would like to add an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to your San Jose property but do not wish to undergo a lengthy permitting process, Valley Home Builders can help. We are proud to offer several ADU plans preapproved by the City of San Jose! We will help you select the ADU plan that suits your lifestyle, preferences and budget.
What Are Preapproved ADUs?
A building plan for an accessory dwelling unit — otherwise referred to as an accessory apartment or granny flat — must go through a permitting process with the city. This process could take several months, especially if you design a plan from scratch.
However, a preapproved ADU plan has been preapproved by the city, speeding up the lengthy permitting process.
Why Choose a Preapproved ADU?
Preapproved ADU plans expedite the building process. In many cases, receiving a building permit for our preapproved ADU plans may takes as little as 1 week — as opposed to the several months it might take for plans that do not have prior approval. The City of San Jose states that site-specific plans that are accurate and complete could receive building permits the same day they are submitted.
In addition to expediting the building process, a preapproved ADU plan could save you money in the long term. With a preapproved plan, you know the project’s relative cost upfront, so you can budget for and allocate funds more effectively.
