The second issue is whether or not the city will require to bring to compliance an unpermitted structure. The City has the power (and duty) to make you comply with zoning laws... so if they discover it, they may make you tear it down... they will likely discover it, if they come to the property for any reason (including inspecting a new build)
In the city of LA you need at least a 7,500 Sq Ft lot in order to build a granny flat (no more than 640 Sq Ft of living space) in an R1 zoned lot.
All this said... go to the Planning Desk in the Building and Safety department of your city, and you will get the final answer.

Did you build it and you know it is un-permitted?
If not perhaps you should go to the various Planning and assessors offices to see if there are some permits on file.
