Question by Mike: How do I register a car that I bought in Kansas City but a residence of Virginia?
I am temporarily working here in Kansas City, KS and bought a car.
I cannot register the car here in Kansas City because I am not a Kansas City resident and does not have a Kansas City address. I am staying most of the time in hotels and extended stay.
How do I register the car in Virginia since I have a Virginia driver’s license and established my residency there. By the way, I traded my car with Virginia tags on it. Can I transfer the tags on the newly bought car?

Question by Nancy E: Capital Gains Tax on Rental Property and Primary Residence Sale?
In 1987 my ex husband and I purchased a home in GA. One year later he joined the military and we moved and the home has been a rental property. I foolishly paid extra on the mortgage, not knowing at the time that this would increase my capital gains tax. Now, divorced I purchased my ex’s interest in the Ga home and I purchased a home in Maryland in 2004 and may be relocating to Virginia in Dec 2008. Are there any loopholes that would assist in lowering the capital gains tax on the GA home? I thought of refinancing the loan to a higher amount but I’m sure that would not work as easily as it sounds. Also, would selling both homes and relocating to VA help in any way? I read something that said if a second home was sold in combination with a primary residence then used to purchase another home, there COULD be a loophole for some… Thanks!

Question by Mikey B: Where can I purchase a stand-alone earthquake insurance policy for a residence in the state of Virginia?
I had earthquake insurance for several years with a well known company as part of a home owners’ policy. Unfortunately, they have recently notified me that they are no longer going to cover residents of Virginia. I could change companies but, this is a hassle and I lose the discounts that I have earned over the years for not having filed a claim. Therefore I would like to find a policy that covers only earthquake damage. Thank you for your help with this matter. It is greatly appreciated.

Well, ANY property carrier should be able to do it, but it’s NOT going to be as cheap as it was on your homeowners policy.
So if your current policy is through an independent agent, ask them to get you a quote on stand-alone earthquake coverage. If it’s through an Allstate, or State Farm, they likely won’t be able to help you, as you’re MOST likely looking at a surplus lines carrier.
SO. You’ll need a referral from your current agent, to an independent that will be willing to help you.
Keep in mind, this policy will PROBABLY have a minimum premium of around $ 2500, with a 5% deductible. That’s the cost to issue this type of policy. You were PROBABLY paying around $ 200 to $ 300 on your homeowners policy. There’s a HUGE price difference. You REALLY might be better off moving the homeowners policy.

James L. Kemper Residence
Image by Universal Pops
The James L. Kemper house (circa 1852) in Madison Virginia, is a wood frame Greek Revival structure, painted white with dark green shutters. There are two stories above a raised basement. The hipped roof is of seam metal. A center porch on the first story consists of Ionic columns, which support a roof and balustrade. The metal railing on the steps is a modern convenience. The windows are 6 over 6 with flat lintels and window surrounds with corner blocks. The doorway is derived from the American architect, Asher Benjamin; it has a continuous, segmented transom and sidelights. Chimneys are at both ends and are of prominent size. Several outbuildings are on the site. Today the building is the Health Department of Madison County.
James Lawson Kemper (1823-1895), a native of Madison and a lawyer served in the Confederate army as a major-general, ultimately being wounded at Gettysburg. He later (1874-1877) became governor of Virginia. Upon retirement from public life, he sold the home in 1881 and moved to Orange County, Virginia where he died.
