Vehicle history report companies; notifications. Requires vehicle history report companies, as defined in the bill, to notify a vehicle owner and lienholder, if any, if his vehicle has been deemed nonrepairable or any comparable term in the records of such company. The bill requires vehicle history report companies to establish and maintain a process for disputing such a designation and, if appropriate, having it corrected in a timely manner. The bill provides that a failure to notify the owner constitutes a violation of the Virginia Consumer Protection Act. The bill authorizes the Department of Motor Vehicles to release the name and address of the vehicle owner and lienholder for the purpose of such notification. Read the Bill »
