Soliciting in Community

Solicitors that operate inside the county are required to register with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

As part of this registration a background check is completed and information on their employer is obtained. Through this process, anyone approved to solicit is issued an identification card showing they are a registered solicitor. All solicitors are required, upon request, to provide their identification card to any person they are contacting as a solicitor. Because the roads in Beacon Hill are public, the community association cannot post “No Soliciting” signage.

In addition to registering, all solicitors must uphold a code of conduct. If a solicitor is found in violation of this code, their privileges will be revoked and they will not be authorized to solicit within Loudoun County for a period of one year.

Solicitation hours in the county are Mon-Sat 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Soliciting is not permitted on Sunday’s or state or national holidays. Solicitors must leave when asked by the property owner. Solicitors must conduct themselves in a lawful and orderly manner and must identify themselves and their purpose of being on the property.
