lol thats what I told my wife. I wonder how often its enforced. it will be on private property behind a wall\gate, off an alley entrance as long as we don't tell neighbors someone living in there hmmm.. but this is for a disabled family member so it will probably be for years [emoticon]

With so many homeless RV's in your area I doubt they would bother you.

Call your L.A. city councilmember's staff. You must know his/her name. They either will tell you or direct you to the proper city agency...probably Building and Safety or Zoning. In California cities it is mostly local decision. In unincorporated areas, its the county and you call your supervisor.

Do you live in a planned unit development with CC&R's? (Covenants Codes, and Restrictions) If so, your homeowners association/board may impose additional restrictions over and above local/municipal codes. In short, the city may not care what you do, but your neighbors might, and, if there are CC&R's which regulate living in an RV on site, they CAN enforce their wishes.

Sounds like it’s totally out in the boonies considering alley access to the back yard and garages being converted to living space.....

OP, if you look online at the county assessors map you’ll see what zoning designation your property is, then you can look up the limitations and allowances.
However, I’d bet you a steak dinner it’s not allowed, so better to claim ignorance than outright lie.
Honestly, it will have more to do with the HOA if you have one and your neighbors.

From a contractor I ask about putting 2 RV pads in the back of my house. He said one for the storage / parking of my motor home would be ok. But the second one I wanted to use for quests would probably violate zoning as it was zoned for single family housing. So one was ok not 2. If there is a pad there someone obviously parked one there one time or another. Were I you I’d try i it and wait for someone to tell me I was wrong.

Imgoin4it, true before the California housing “crisis.” Now almost anything goes to add housing.
