Process for the Disposition of Surplus Real Estate

When a Commonwealth agency determines that land it controls is not being fully utilized, the Department of General Services (DGS) conducts the transfer or sale of the property in a matter that maximizes the use of the Commonwealth’s asset to best serve its citizens in an open and objective manner.

Once an agency notifies DGS that land under its control is not being fully utilized by that agency, DGS reviews the property records and contacts the Department of Treasury to determine if there are any outstanding bond obligations associated with the property.  DGS also determines if there is valid need by another department, agency or institution for the real estate. If no other department, agency or institution has a need for the property DGS offers it at its fair market value to the county and municipality where the property is located for its further public use.  DGS asks for a response from the county and municipality within 30 days. 

If there is no identified state or local government need for the property after these steps are taken then DGS will move forward with declaring the property surplus, as per §2.2-1156.  DGS requests the written opinion of the Secretary of Natural Resources as to whether the property is a significant component of the Commonwealth’s natural and historic resources, and if so how those resources should be protected in the sale of the property.  Once the written opinion of the Secretary of Natural Resources is obtained, DGS provides the opinion of the Secretary to the Governor and seeks written authorization to sell the property. 

DGS may sell the property by public auction, sealed bids, or by marketing through one or more real estate brokers licensed by the Commonwealth.  Properties are also widely marketed and listed on the DGS/Division of Real Estate Services website to provide all citizens of the Commonwealth and any other potential purchasers with an equal opportunity to acquire the property.
