This regulation was promulgated by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in response to Chapter 895 of the 2007 Acts of Assembly to address partial reimbursements of costs to a landowner who obtains a written appraisal report in cases where the landowner and VDOT cannot reach an agreement as to the price of property needed for public purposes pursuant to § 25.1-417.1 of the Code of Virginia.
