LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A new book for California homeowners explains everything they need to know about the end of single-family zoning in California, including what the new laws allow property owners and developers to build on single-family parcels. The book was written for owners of California's 7,000,000 single-family homes to help them decide: Stay in the house or sell the house now?
Single-family zoning ended in California on January 1, 2022, when the state's new density mandate for single-family properties took effect.
"There's been some attention to the laws, but not nearly enough given how they impact homeowners, people renting or sharing homes who may be displaced by redevelopment, and neighborhoods," says Cary Brazeman, author of "The End of Single-Family Zoning in California: How to Protect Yourself and Profit from Permissive New Upzoning Laws."
The book is available for download at https://TheEndofZoning.com/. It is free to download the book.
New California laws SB 9 and SB 10 allow multi-unit and multi-story buildings on single-family lots. SB 9, which overrides local control of zoning, is particularly controversial. A majority of Californians opposed the law, as did hundreds of California cities. The left-leaning Los Angeles City Council also objected. So did right-leaning Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
The new book helps homeowners understand the new laws and their potential impacts on people, property values and neighborhoods. Homeowners who read the book will learn:
- What developers are now allowed to build in single-family neighborhoods
- What can be done to stop them
- What local governments can (and cannot) do in response
- How homeowners can protect themselves from the redevelopment of neighborhoods
- How homeowners can cash in — if they decide to — by selling their houses to investors or redeveloping properties themselves
The book also illuminates how the laws can be exploited to destroy historic resources and produce dense housing in high-risk fire zones. Read the book to learn:
- How much density developers can build now on single-family lots
- What they can build with no approvals, and what they need clearance to build
- Changes affecting the demolition of historic properties
- Changes affecting the development of hillsides, canyons and coastal areas
- Whether it's necessary to include any affordable units in the new buildings, or pay any impact fees in order to develop single-family properties at higher densities
- How the new laws will lead to increased Wall Street ownership of California homes
Every homeowner in California should read this book. The book is free to download at https://TheEndofZoning.com/.
