VA Real Estate Legal Updates
and Flood Instruction



Course Description

Disclosure laws are in place that protect both buyers and sellers. Attorneys that deal with real estate transactions report that the most common source of a real estate lawsuit is nondisclosure. This course outlines the general statutory requirements surrounding property disclosure requirements in Virginia.

The 2015 Virginia General Assembly approved HB 2295 to require certain active real estate licensees complete continuing education in “flood hazard areas and the National Flood Insurance Program” (Flood Instruction) as a condition for license renewal. As of January 1, 2016, flood Instruction content is included in Real Estate Board-approved continuing education (CE) courses under the Legal Updates (LU) subject area. This course satisfies that requirement.
