Selling your Home?

Selling your Home?

If you are selling your home in Newington Forest, you must request a Virginia Property Owner Disclosure Packet from the Association. 

You may place one For Sale sign in your yard. Directional signs can be used for an Open House Only and must be removed immediately following the Open House. Randomly placed directional signs are not permitted to be set out on common areas will be removed and discarded.

You can request the Property Owner Disclosure packet online. An inspection of the lot is required before the documents are released by the Association. The inspections are done on Wednesday and we MUST be able to ACCESS YOUR BACKYARD. 

Virginia State law allows the Association up to 14 days to prepare the packet. We try to have the packets ready within a week of the inspection, but the office workload sometimes necessitates a delay. The cost of the packet is $145 for an electronic copy or $175 for a paper copy plus $50 for the property inspection. The cost of the packet may be collected at closing or paid by check (payable to NFCA). Submit the packet request by clicking the button at the top of the page which the Virginia Property Owner’s Act requires you to furnish to a prospective purchaser who enters a contract with you to purchase your home.  You can also get the request form by contacting the NFCA Office at 703-451-8563.

We try to do the inspection required to complete the Disclosure Packet first thing in the morning on Wednesdays. If your request is in our office by 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday we can include your property in that week inspections. Packets can take as long as two weeks to prepare, so be sure to get your request in promptly. Do not allow your real estate agent to limit the number of days allowed to turn over the packet to the new buyers.
