Accessory Dwelling Units - Waiver
San Francisco’s ADU Program allows two different types of ADUs:
- “Waiver” ADUs – all multi-family buildings and single-family homes that need one or more waivers from the Planning Code for requirements like exposure, open space, or rear yards; and
- “No-Waiver” ADUs – single-family homes that do not need waivers from the Planning Code.
