Is replacement parking required for a garage conversion?

It depends. No replacement or additional off-street parking is required when converting an existing garage, carport, or covered parking structure as an ADU.  Please note, however, that a JADU created in an attached garage (not more than 500 sf in size) is not afforded the same parking protections as ADUs and replacement parking must be provided onsite.
