Selling Your Home?
When selling your home, Virginia law (Property Owners’ Association Act) requires that you obtain disclosure documents which contain pertinent information regarding design or maintenance violations as recorded by association staff inspecting the exterior of your property. These documents also include assessment information for new buyers, recreational information, a community map and other homeowner resource materials. Disclosure documents are valid for one year.
Virginia law states that only the owner or his/her authorized agent (such as a realtor) may purchase and receive resale disclosure documents. Order these documents in advance of listing your home so that you can address issues that may delay a sale.
Please follow the steps below when selling your home:
- Contact the TWC Association Manager (see home page for contact information) to obtain an official copy of the Ridgewood Cluster Documents and the Cluster Disclosure Packet.
- Contact the Reston Association to order the Reston Association Resale Disclosure Documents or Packet for your property. Information on requesting the material can be found at https://www.reston.org/property-owner-resources.
- Ensure that your property does not have a lien or unpaid assessment. Contact the TWC Association Manager for a current account balance.
- The Reston Association will inspect your property automatically and issue any necessary citations. Ensure that your property is not violating any Ridgewood or Reston Association covenants such as incorrect paint colors, incorrect deck or fence stain, damaged wood porch/siding, visible satellite dish from street, incorrect light fixtures, etc.
- Good luck with your sale! Please remember to:
- Set out all trash after the earlier of 6 pm or sundown
- Have prospective buyers park in visitors’ spots or your designated spots.
- Post signs only in your lawn (not in common areas or on curbs).
Note: Open House signs are permissible only on the day of the event and must be removed the same day.
