Join DAR atLegislative Hall on the final day of session to see how the "sausage" is made!
The legislature is expected to convene around 5:00 p.m. and go until ... well ... no one knows at this point. Check our Facebook page on Tuesday for live updates from the Hall. DAR will be keeping a close eye on what transpires this week in regards to the Transfer Tax, and we’ll be watching these two pieces of legislation in particular:
HB 419: The Buyer Property Protection Act:This bill allows the Delaware Real Estate Commission to develop a new form of Seller’s Disclosure for the sale of vacant land being sold without a house but being marketed as appropriate for the construction of a dwelling for 1 - 4 families. HB 419 passed out of committee on Thursday, but still needs a full House vote before it can go to the Senate. DAR supports this legislation.
HS 1 for HB 262:State Resource Area Mapping for Open Space: This legislation would have brought back DNREC State Resource Area (SRA) Maps for open space purchases. DAR believes that any DNREC resource area mapping would devalue property and make it difficult for property owners to sell or develop their land. DAR and other stakeholders involved in the process had the SRA Map requirement removed from the legislation, and worked to ensure that any information obtained by DNREC for use in an open space purchase that falls through would not be publicly accessible.DAR supports this legislation in its current form.
