The community can not ban solicitors, and even if signs were installed they could not be enforced.
To try to discourage solicitors at your door, you could post a small ‘No Soliciting’ sign.
See downloadable No Soliciting sign below that you can print and post.
This is the law in Loudoun County regarding solicitors (from the Sheriff’s website):
All for profit solicitors must register with the Sheriff’s Office. During this registration a criminal history check is performed and if the solicitor meets the requirements they are issued a solicitor permit.
Some solicitors do not need permits, such as those selling meats or vegetables.
To see a sample permit, see pg 3 here:
Solicitors are also given a copy of the solicitor regulations which includes the hours they can solicit and a code of conduct. This regulation can be found in Chapter 828 of the County Code:
If you encounter a solicitor and you do not believe they have registered or their behavior is aggressive, rude, or threatening, you should call the Sheriff’s Office immediately at 703-777-1021.
Deputies will respond to check their status and to ensure that they are conducting business lawfully.
