Landlord -Tenant Rights

The Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (hereafter VRLTA) handbook has been prepared to provide information on the rights, remedies, and responsibilities of landlords and renters concerning the rental process. Before signing a lease, prospective tenants should read and understand the terms of the contract. Consulting a lawyer or the landlord for clarification of the rental agreement is advisable.
