New Arizona Law on Signs in Neighborhoods with HOA

Selling your home can be a challenging enough task without your homeowners association (HOA) trying to tell you what type of sign you can hang to advertise it or where. Up until this year, that’s exactly what many Arizona HOAs were known for doing. Thankfully, the Arizona legislature passed a new law recently to protect your right to post For Sale signs (as well as other signs), and it goes into effect on August 8, 2012.

Here below are the four new protections the law makes:

  • HOAs can prohibit the display of political signs 71 days before an election and three days after an election.
  • The aggregate total signage of all signs on a homeowner’s property must not exceed nine square feet.
  • HOAs can prohibit real estate signs that are not commercially produced.
  • HOAs cannot charge a fee for “for rent” or “for lease” signs.

Thank you, Combs Law Group, for reminding us about the law’s effective date and the fact that it’s coming soon!
