Per the Virginia Property Owners’ Association Act § 55.1-1808, an owner selling a lot shall disclose in the contract that (i) the lot is located within a development that is subject to the Property Owners’ Association Act (§ 55.1-1800 et seq.) and (ii) the Property Owners’ Association Act (§ 55.1-1800 et seq.) requires the seller to obtain from the property owners’ association an association disclosure packet and provide it to the purchaser. (see more of the POA Act visit: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title55.1/chapter18/)
To request a disclosure packet for either a residential or a commercial property, please go to FirstService (welcomelink.com) and register. Once you are registered then you can order the disclosure.
If there are any questions please reach out to our Compliance Manager at 804-744-1035, extension 3002 or via email.
Once the request is received:
1. A Compliance Specialist will go out to the property to inspect and take pictures of the property in it’s entirety.
2. A violation report will be written up stating the property is either in compliance or is not in compliance. Whatever is noted on this report, in the eyes of the Association, will not effect closing. Any items that are not taken care of will transfer to the purchaser.
3. Other items that are included in the disclosure packet are the following: accounting letter, Board meeting minutes, governing documents, residential/commercial design standards, budget, and insurance information.
4. A re-inspection of the property is not required unless the seller or buyer would like an updated report. If an re-inspection is needed, please fill out the disclosure request form and mark the re-inspection options.
