§ 24.301(g)(17) Searching expense:
Limit raised to $2,500.
New reimbursement items.
Owner or professional's time spent for:
Obtaining permits and attending hearings.
Negotiating the purchase or lease of replacement site.
For nonresidential moves, several changes potentially provide increased benefits to assist in making a relocation successful. One is the increased searching expense limit and the two new items added to the nonexclusive list of items that could be reimbursed. The owner's or owner representative's time, based on a reasonable hourly rate, can now be reimbursed for activities directly related to securing the new site. This change does not extend to brokerage fees, etc. Additionally, this does not include fees assessed for permits that can be reimbursed under § 24.301(g)(11).
Note that the list in § 24.301(g)(17) provides examples of qualifying costs, not an all-inclusive list.
