Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. You would turn to your Home Owners Association (HOA) Bylaws and notwithstanding any provision in the community documents, it is likely that this is permissible. You may also want to review the Maricopa County Zoning Ordinances to verify this is not a permissible use of the property.
