The next step to understanding what residency restrictions apply will depend upon state laws and possibly also local (county and or city) ordinances which may be stricter than the state's rule. If there is no local ordinance the state law applies but if there is it may override the state rule.
The technical term for any law, residency restriction or any other, is called a statute. It will have a chapter and a section which is the legal system's method of cataloging all laws.
Updating this section for every state, much less county and city, is a massive project. Gradually this section will activate links to more states, and then to the countes and cities within the state.
Check the state statute first then click on the state to look at local ordinances. If your state's link is not yet active, email us and will priortize your question. If you can provide us with information we don't yet have listed, we will gladly accept and appreciate the information as well.
Currently our Florida section is nearly complete and we are working on the states of California and Texas.
Laws are subject to change and H.O.S.T. in no way c;laims the information is current. Click on the statute link to verify current information.
