Selling Your Home

Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest investments in a person’s life. The Association strives to make the process as convenient as possible for both buyers and sellers with an understanding of Homeowner Association policies and procedures.

Virginia Property Owners’ Association Act (POA)

Residents who are part of a Homeowners Association in the Commonwealth of Virginia are required to abide by the Virginia Property Owners’ Association Act (POA). Part of this process involves the acquisition of a Disclosure Packet in the process of buying or selling a home.

POA Disclosure Packet

In order to put a house on the market, the seller must obtain a POA Disclosure Packet by completing a POA Disclosure Packet Request Form. This packet contains important information to be passed on to the purchaser of the property. It can be requested in either paper or electronic format and can be expedited for an additional fee.
