VBA's Real Estate Law Day was a smashing success with over 200 attendees! The day started off with some property transfer tax and land gains tax return advice for the new system with Doug Farnham and Elizabeth Hunt from VDOT. Section Co-Chair Benj Deppman and Realtor Amey Ryan gave a lively presentation about Rights of First Refusal and Options. When 200 attendees were asked to raise their hands if they liked ROFRs, not a hand was raised! We also heard from the panel and Jesse Goldfine on P&S Contracts and Co-Chair Jim Knapp recapping the fire marshal meeting. Finally, after a delicious lunch at the Capitol Plaza, the realtors put on a presentation about the Dodd Frank Act.
Following are some pictures from the event:
