I think it was a HOA restriction. To be honest, I never checked beyond the initial conversation since it didn't matter to me if it was a HOA or Wake County restriction.

Just wanted to clarify because your first post made it sound like you had to sign a contract with the city
about renting out the space. Was this an attached space ??

I don't live within the city limits, so it was definitely not with the city. The space is attached, and is comprised of what would have been the downstairs master and formal living room. The space includes a bedroom, closet, bathroom, living room and full kitchen.

in Raleigh, and perhaps Wake County, the kicker is making it a full living situation - bedroom, kitchen, and full bath. You cannot have a detached rentable area, since it is single family. I see plenty of $$ basements with full kitchens and baths and bedrooms and of course a door to the outside. Now, if you go rent them out, you're breaking the law.

There are numerous older homes with detached garages that were built as full apartments that were grandfathered in.

Raleigh City Council is currently weighing changing code to allow "granny flats" as they're being called.

In Clayton they have built them in Flowers Plantation, but they're not selling new in that community anymore I don't believe. I'm pretty sure Lennar has built at least one of these models in every single family home community they've started in this region since 2013.
I know that Lennar has them in their Friar's Gate community. Very popular with the Indian population.

Given how controversial ADUs were in Raleigh's zoning code update, I was super surprised to find that they're broadly legal in Cary, the land of beige-on-beige signage. Only larger lots can have detached ADUs, but "utility dwelling units" (mother in law suites) are allowed just about anywhere.

That said, even if the town zoning checks out, many houses in Cary are subject to HOA bylaws that may still restrict them.
