House Bill 636 – Guaranteeing accessory dwelling units

House Bill 636 – Guaranteeing accessory dwelling units

Niklas Kleinworth
February 23, 2022

Bill Description: House Bill 636 gives property owners the right to have accessory dwelling units (“granny flats” or “in-law apartments”) on their property and voids any local regulations and ordinances that ban them.

Rating: +1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market?

Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) provide  income for homeowners and a practical method of allowing families to grant others a temporary place to live. Regulation and even prohibition of these living arrangements through local policies harms the free market, especially people who are looking for temporary housing.

This legislation asserts property owners’ rights to possess ADUs through prohibiting all county, city, and homeowners’ association regulations banning them. This reduces the government’s control of the free market and empowers property owners to decide how to manage their own land and resources.
