I'm homeless and living in a tent with my girlfriend. A couple Puyallup police cops came back to where we are camping. They didn't give us a reason on why they showed up. They told us we can't camp in Puyallup, even with permission and on private property.
Being the owner of private property does not mean the owner can do whatever the owner wants on the property.
For example, the owner cannot just start building without getting permits from the government.
The owner also cannot allow long-term camping on the property. A day or two of "camping" in the backyard for the children likely is not going to bring the government to the land. Allowing someone to live in tents on the land likely will bring the government to the land as it did in your case.
Since you have permission from the owner of the land to be there, you would not be facing trespassing charges.
However, the owner has no authority to waive land use regulations of the city.
