SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Inverse condemnation proceeding; reimbursement of owner's costs. Directs the court to reimburse a plaintiff for the costs of an inverse condemnation proceeding for "damaging" property if a judgment is entered for the plaintiff. Under current law, the court is directed to award costs only for the "taking" of property. The change made in this bill corresponds with the language of amendments to Article I, Section 11 of the Constitution of Virginia, which became effective on January 1, 2013. The provisions of the bill do not apply to declaratory judgment proceedings filed prior to July 1, 2016.
