Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Virginia

Is it legal to assign a real estate sales contract (a.k.a. purchase agreement) in Virginia?

Also, can Title companies legally perform back-to-back closings (not to be confused with simultaneous closings) on real estate in Virginia?

Thanks in advance!
