Solar panels in community associations. Clarifies that a community association may establish reasonable restrictions concerning the size, place, and manner of placement of solar energy collection devices on property designated and intended for individual ownership and use. The bill also requires the resale certificate required under the Virginia Condominium Act and the disclosure packet under the Virginia Property Owners' Association Act to contain a statement setting forth any restriction, limitation, or prohibition on the right of an owner to install or use solar energy collection devices on his property. In addition, the bill adds to the seller's representation to a prospective purchaser of residential property under the Virginia Residential Property Disclosure Act that the seller makes no representations with respect to right to install or use solar energy collection devices on the property.
