If your location doesn't permit the activities you want to pursue, don't despair. In many situations, a zoning variance can be obtained. You'll need to make a request to your county government who will approve or deny your request. Before starting the process, consult with a real estate attorney or development lawyer. Getting legal assistance early in the process will prevent you from making costly mistakes later down the line.
If your homeowner's association prohibits your plans, go to the next meeting and ask if the rules can be changed. You also may want to volunteer to join the committee or aid with association business. If you encounter resistance, consult with a lawyer. In many cases, association covenants are not filed and attached to your deed properly. A lawyer may be able to fight against unreasonable rules.
