Thursday proved to be a productive day for VAR’s legislative agenda as a few of its bills continued through the legislative process.
House Bill 741 (Del. Jackson Miller), which creates a licensure system for home inspectors in Virginia, was unanimously approved by a House General Laws subcommittee. The bill will now advance to the full committee for consideration.
A companion home inspector licensing bill, Senate Bill 453 (Sen. Bill Stanley), is scheduled for a vote by the full Senate on Friday. VAR has worked with the home inspection industry and the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation to craft this legislation to protect buyers and sellers in the real estate transaction.
In addition to those bills, House Bill 567 (Del. Jackson Miller) advanced uncontested out of the House General Laws Committee. The bill, which makes amendments to Virginia’s real estate agency law, will now be considered by the full House of Delegates.
