Are pets permitted?

Of course! We love our furry friends! There are regulations in our Design Guidelines to follow if you would need a fenced-in dog run added to your property. There is also a daily Yappy Hour on the lawn outside the Clubhouse at 3 pm Monday-Friday. There community members and their dogs can gather to chat and relax. Per City of Prescott, dogs must be leashed when not confined. It’s also important to note that pets are defined as: domesticated house cats and dogs, caged small birds and small fish.



Can I run a small business out of my home?

If you happen to work remotely out of a private office in your home and don’t have external traffic coming and going, that is supported.  However, the CC&Rs state that “no lots or structures shall be used for trade, or business, or commercial purposes of any kind.” However, the main reason for this rule is to cut down on excessive street traffic due to certain types of businesses.

What is the amount of the annual assessments?

For 2023 the assessment is $400. An HOA may have a need to increase assessments each year if there is a fiscal reason to do so, however, the increase cannot exceed 20% per year increase based upon the current year’s assessment fee without the vote of the membership. Assessments are due in January of each year.

Can I park my RV on my property?

ALL RECREATIONAL VEHICLES, including motor homes, trailers, boats, and related equipment may be parked on a homeowner’s driveway for a maximum of THREE DAYS prior to use and THREE DAYS after use in any thirty (30) day period, for the purpose of preparation and cleaning.

What is a homeowner’s association?

Yavapai Hills Homeowners Association is a non-profit corporation registered with the State of Arizona and managed by a duly elected Board of Directors.
The purpose of the HOA is to:

1.  Maintain all common areas.
2. Govern the community in accordance with the provision of the legal documents: CC&Rs, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation.
3. Establish annual assessments.

The corporation is financially supported by all members of the homeowner’s association. Membership is both automatic and mandatory.

What are the CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions)?

The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are the governing legal documents that set up the guidelines for the operation of the planned community as a non-profit corporation. The CC&Rs were recorded by the Yavapai County recorder’s office and are included in the title to your property.

Within Yavapai Hills HOA we have 17 CC&Rs.  To understand your responsibilities, you will need to know your Unit and Phase.  You will receive a copy of your specific CC&Rs once you purchase your home.

What are the Bylaws?

The Bylaws are the guidelines for the operation of the non-profit corporation and the Board of Directors. The Bylaws define the duties of the various offices of the Board of Directors, the terms of the Directors, the membership’s voting rights, required meetings and notices of meetings, and the principal office of the Association, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business.
