What happens when a new community participates in the ADU Rental Program?
The new units must initially be offered through a lottery process. The lottery is available to people with an unexpired ADU Rental Program certificate who are on the ADU Rental Program Waiting List and who are not currently renting an ADU unit. Lottery packets are mailed to the waiting list. Certificate holders who are interested in renting at the new community can submit a lottery ticket. Tickets are drawn on the designated lottery date and are sent to the leasing office of the new community numbered in the order in which they were drawn. The leasing office contacts the lottery winners in this order to see if they are interested in renting an ADU unit. Once all lottery winners have been contacted, if there are still available ADU units, the units become first-come, first-serve to an ADU Rental Program certificate holder.
