Nonresidential Moves

Notes:

These are the same expense items that had been part of the re-establishment expenses in § 24.304. As such, they are not new. The difference is that they are now separate from the $10,000 limitation for total re-establishment costs and are handled individually on an "actual, reasonable, and necessary" basis.

Related to professional services and prior to purchase/lease of a site, certain investigative costs are reimbursable, but these must be reasonable and justified. If a site is rejected, further site testing may be justified at an alternative site following a "due diligence" rationale. The agency should be involved and provide advice in such situations.

Agencies should work with displaced persons to establish acceptable rates for professional services needed to determine site suitability.

Informational Guide: Please reference the "Changes in Business Moving Payments Example". This graphically illustrates the revised outcomes of moving cost reimbursement to displaced businesses as the result of the changes in Subpart D § 24.301,303, 304.
