Title 38.2. Insurance
Chapter 46. Title Insurance

§ 38.2-4616. Notification to buyers of the availability of owner's title insurance.

In connection with any transaction involving the purchase or sale of an interest in residential real property in this Commonwealth, the settlement agent as defined in § 55.1-900, before the disbursement of any funds, shall obtain from the purchaser a statement in writing that he has been notified by the settlement agent that the purchaser may wish to obtain owner's title insurance coverage including affirmative mechanics' lien coverage, if available, and of the general nature of such coverage, and that the purchaser does or does not desire such coverage. The notification shall include language that the value of subsequent improvements to the property may not be covered.

The failure of a settlement agent to provide the information requested by this section shall not of itself be deemed to create a cause of action that would not otherwise exist.
