If you are a property manager who uses potential tenants’ credit reports as part of your rental process, you need to be aware of a significant change to the law.
This is straight from NAR’s September “Did You Know?”:
Yes, you read that right: Nine of our property management forms — leases, addenda, disclosures, etc. — have been updated.
This is a major overhaul done in collaboration with the Northern Virginia and Richmond associations along with VAR’s Standard Forms Working Group to make these forms more user friendly, and to ensure accuracy.
If you do any work in property management you need to head to VAR’s Forms Center and get the new documents.

Governor McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bolling, Attorney General Cuccinelli, and House and Senate Republican Leadership announce joint agenda for 2011 legislative session.
From Governor's press release:
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli discussed individual property rights and their importance to the people of Virginia, stating, “There are legitimate reasons the government utilizes its power of eminent domain – for the construction of roads, schools, jails and utility easements,” Cuccinelli said. “However, we have to stand up for families and businesses to prevent government from using this extraordinary power when there is not a legitimate public need. A shopping mall or tourism information center is not a core public need.”
