Chapter 24. Virginia Real Estate Cooperative Act
8/22/2019

§ 55-477. (Repealed effective October 1, 2019) Liability for public offering statement; requirements.

A. Except as provided in subsection B, a declarant, prior to the offering of any cooperative interest to the public, shall prepare a public offering statement conforming to the requirements of §§ 55-478, 55-479, 55-480 and 55-481.

B. A declarant may transfer responsibility for preparation of all or a part of the public offering statement to a successor declarant or to a person in the business of selling cooperative interests who intends to offer cooperative interests in the cooperative for his own account. In the event of any such transfer, the transferor shall provide the transferee with any information necessary to enable the transferee to fulfill the requirements of subsection A.

C. Any declarant or other person in the business of selling cooperative interests who offers a cooperative interest for his own account to a purchaser shall deliver a public offering statement in the manner prescribed in subsection A of § 55-483. The person who prepared all or a part of the public offering statement is liable under §§ 55-483, 55-492, 55-500 and 55-501 for any false or misleading statement set forth therein or for any omission of material fact therefrom with respect to that portion of the public offering statement which he prepared. If a declarant did not prepare any part of a public offering statement that he delivers, he is not liable for any false or misleading statement set forth therein or for any omission of material fact therefrom unless he had actual knowledge of the statement or omission or, in the exercise of reasonable care, should have known of the statement or omission.

D. If a unit is part of a cooperative and is part of any other real estate regime in connection with the sale of which the delivery of a public offering statement is required under the laws of this Commonwealth, a single public offering statement, conforming to the requirements of §§ 55-478, 55-479, 55-480 and 55-481 as those requirements relate to each regime in which the unit is located, and to any other requirements imposed under the laws of this Commonwealth, may be prepared and delivered in lieu of providing two or more public offering statements.
