Door to Door Solicitations

March 31, 2017

In this tight real estate market, many Realtors are farming neighborhoods and subdivisions seeking to identify new prospective clients. In the Richmond region, Goochland and Hanover Counties each have ordinances that prohibit door to door solicitations concerning real estate brokerage services, including leaving brochures or other materials behind. This activity falls under these counties no solicitation ordinances and is a prosecutable offense. At this time, other jurisdictions in the Richmond region do not prohibit door to door activity for real estate activities.

Please be aware of these ordinances as you conduct your business and contact Jo Gehlbach at jgehlbach@rarealtors.com if you have any questions.
