Before installing signs/directionals - call Miss Utility - Miss Utility must be called if we are installing the professional post sign. Yard MUST be marked BEFORE sign company comes out or they will leave and you will have to pay again.
For Sale By Owner accepts no responsibility for damage to underground facilities. Locating and marking such facilities are the responsibility of the homeowner.
Should I call Miss Utility (1-800-552-7001 or www.missutilityofvirginia.com) before placing the sign post order? Yes, always, as there are yard lights (gas or electric) and visible electrical or telephone boxes (light green in color) in the yard. This means that there are underground utility lines at this location. Have the underground utilities marked, prior to our arrival. By placing this order, you accept full responsibility for locating and identifying all utility lines, inc: sprinkler systems. Neither For Sale By Owner (Crevier-Kent Inc.) nor its subcontractors accepts responsibility for damage to unmarked underground facilities.
Check county and state and Local laws and your HOA.
FSBO will not be responsible for fines incurred due to sellers breaking VA Code violations. Seller understand that fines incurred to FSBO for illegally placed signs will automatically be charged to the Seller’s credit card.
Homeowners will automatically be charged the following fees (in addition to the deposits) for failure to return rented items in proper timeframe:
$100 for lockbox, $100.00 for each Post Yard Sign, $35.00 for each Frame Yard Sign; $11.00 for each directional sign; $11.00 for each tube; $22.00 for info box and $7.00 for each insert, the day after the seller’s advertisement expires. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
