ADU Program guidelines allow homeowners to increase the value of the ADU property when they make ADU Program-approved improvements to the home. In order to receive reimbursement for approved home improvements, the seller is required to submit the following documentation prior tothe home being offered for sale through the program:
Photographs of the completed improvement(s)
Copy of original paid-in-full receipt(s)
Copy of documentation from Loudoun County that the home improvement was inspected and passed inspection (for improvements like a deck, finishing a basement, adding a bath or half-bath and anything involving electrical and / or plumbing work).
If you cannot provide receipts, or if the seller performed the home improvement, the seller can pay a Virginia-licensed appraiser to appraise the home improvements that were made and assign a value to the improvement.
If a fence, deck or patio was completed, a letter from the Homeowners / Condominium Association must be submitted to the Department of Family Services indicating that the fence, deck or patio was approved.
