Learn Your Commercial & Residential HOA Parking Rules for Arizona
When it comes to dealing with a complaint or a dispute, HOA parking laws in AZ can be different from other states. If you’re an HOA manager that’s new to Arizona, you will want to educate yourself on Arizona’s residential parking laws, and especially for street and private parking.
Understand Local Administrative Control on Public Roads
HOA’s can never take precedence over state and local laws regarding parking violations. Trying to impose a fine or having a vehicle towed on a public road that runs through your community, “without knowing” if you have jurisdictional rights to do so, would be more problematic than the parking issue itself. Each community is unique and your rights and obligations are found in the CC&Rs. Before engaging in any HOA parking enforcement in Arizona it is imperative that you know and understand the CC&RS in addition to public and private laws locally.
Communicate Your HOA Parking Policy in Specifics
We have offices in Mesa, Phoenix, Glendale, Prescott and Denver. As attorneys in these locations, we see too often where HOA’s leave their parking policies too vague. Situations and disputes arise where policies are vague. For example a local resident, may have scheduled a family reunion thinking they know the parking rules, when in fact they are in violation. And as a local resident, no one wants to get a call from an HOA board member or manager that they are in violation after having reviewed your community HOA policy. Do the best you can as an HOA to provide specifics for your residents. The best way to handle a parking dispute is to avoid one altogether.
