I don't think you will find a state law that would prohibit you from having this position and having a maintenance contract. If they claim there's a law, you should ask for the code number, statute or other proof of such a law. I don't think you'll be given one.
However, there may be a bylaw, CCR or other homeowners regulation that prohibits this, and if that's the case, you'll have to live with it.
